    Pickpocketing is not honest, but it is lucrative. That is, until 17-year-old Charles Main gets caught, and the judge gives the vagrant a choice: Go to prison or join the Army. In basic training, he is amazed (and confused) by all the people who actually volunteered to be here. But he soon befriends Carrie Borden, one of the first female cavalry scouts in the US Army, who helps him understand what selfless really means. Deployed together in the fight against ISIS, their platoon quickly gains a reputation of mythological proportions.
