Paul's need for answers becomes stronger than his duty to his family, leading him on a journey to find truth. Along the way Paul deals with the pain of such a tragedy, but through the recollections of those important to his son, he learns that a gallant death in battle is not what defines a hero. American Son is a drama that digs deeper in to the lives of those affected by war casualties, reminding us that life goes on through the memories of our loved ones. Written by Anonymous See less
