It's 1989 and Chris Carter has been seduced by the British Army. Seduced by the posters and the TV ads to live life to the max! Be the best! Start a new life! Leaving behind him the traumas of a broken home, he looks forward to a warm welcome from his new family, and to giving his all in return. It takes nearly one year of training to get there, but only one week to realise that what he's fallen for is just the hype. It has all been one big mistake - a mistake that will push Carter right to the edge. Love, Lust and Paradise it certainly ain't!
