There they relive the cherished moments of their lives: the love each one left behind, and the regret that haunts them.
Chris is a major, a man of honor and duty, who wonders if his free spirited wife, Emily, is waiting faithfully at home, or even if she ever was. Isaac is a young private, raised in a military family, forced into the fight in an effort to distance himself from a forbidden love. Roman, a smart-ass, rebellious reservist, will say or do anything to get back to the woman he believes is his soulmate, even though she belongs to another man.
Set in a not-too-distant future, Sticks and Stones has a direct resonance with topical concerns about where we are heading as a species. It is a story about how our individual and collective future is always dictated by the past, and how passion bends toward love or violence.
