The year is 1993. The day? Memorial Day. Young Kyle Vogel has the adventurous spirit a boy of 13 years should have. When he comes across his grandpa Bud's footlocker from World War II, everyone immediately asks him to put it back and forget about it. But that won't stop Kyle and his curious nature. Bud has a lot of painful memories from the war, hidden deep down. They had never been brought to the surface until Kyle implores that they talk about it. So Bud gives in to Kyle's inquisitive nature. As long as Kyle picks no more than three items from the footlocker, his grandpa will tell the tales that live within each souvenir. With each souvenir comes more insight into Bud's history as a soldier in WWII. Further, the movie takes you into Kyle's own war experiences in the future. Had Bud's tales never been shared on that Memorial Day all those years ago, Kyle and his grandfather may never have been able to relate to each other on such a level.
