Billy Lynn's Long Halftime WalkLarge Print - 2012
On this rainy Thanksgiving Day, the Bravos are guests of the Dallas Cowboys and slated to be part of the halftime show. Among them is nineteen-year-old Silver Star-winning hero, William Lynn. Amid clamoring patriots sporting flag pins on their lapels and Support Our Troops bumper stickers on their cars, the Bravos are thrust into the company of the Cowboys' owner and his rich pals, a luscious Cowboys cheerleader, a Hollywood producer, and supersized pro players eager for a vicarious taste of war.
Before this day is over, Billy will begin to understand difficult truths about himself, his country, his struggling family, and his brothers-in-arms - and he'll discover pure love and a bitter wisdom far beyond his years.
