Stop Loss: The retention of soldiers in the service beyond their expected term. Using a loophole in soldiers' military contracts to prohibit servicemen and women from retiring once their required term of service is complete. Also widely known as a "Back Door Draft."
As a result there have been record rates of desertion in recent years. This movie is about one otherwise obedient soldier's decision to either ship back to Iraq or go to Canada.
