Joey (Lola Kirke) doesn’t really have many options in her small hometown. One of the few ways to get out is to join the army, so that’s what she does. It is just then when Joey meets Rayna (Breeda Wool) and falls in love with her. And Rayna seems to like Joey, too. But she’s also married and has two children, which spells trouble for everyone involved.
AWOL has an interesting setting and Kirke is really strong, but other than that, I pretty much ended up hating the film.
