After finishing training Leo and Miguel apply for the same squadron as medics.
On an operation a cocky squad mate, named Kyle, who has some tension with Leo, attempts a very risky maneuver and ends up getting seriously injured. Leo has to run into the crossfire to save him, despite his dislike for Kyle.
Leo is given a medal for his feat but Kyle, envies him for stealing his glory.
Before Leo and Miguel can be discharged they have to complete one last mission. It is a rescue mission to save a captured general.
On the mission Leo makes good tactical moves and saves another squad-mate, which angers Kyle. Furious with Leo, Kyle aims his gun at Leo and at the last second, Miguel jumps in front of him and gets shot in the lung. Leo does all he can to save his friend, but in the end it wasn’t enough.
After Leo’s adventure he realizes how easy his old life was and misses living, what he previously thought, a painless existence.
