Fifty years later, they are among thousands of U.S. military veterans, many with distinguished records, who are being deported. The brothers reluctantly put their uniforms on for one last mission; to bring deported veterans and their families back home.  It's a quixotic quest that leaves one brother exiled in a foreign country, while the other will go all the way to the White House.
