Luke Stephens (Zane Holtz, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower") shows up on his brother Nicky's (Ryan Eggold, "The Blacklist") doorstep after a tour of duty in Afghanistan. Suffering from both Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (P. T. S. D. ) and physical wounds that are unseen yet devastating, Luke wants nothing more than to forget the war, but his veteran father (David James Elliott, 'Trumbo") won't let him. Then, at a local strip club run by a ruthless killer, Luke crosses paths with Michelle (Heather McComb, "Ray Donovan"), who leads him into a violent world every bit as dangerous as the brutality Luke so desperately tried to leave behind in The Middle East. BATTLE SCARS examines the war experience as well as the wrenching change many veterans face upon returning home.
