Boogieban is about Lawrence Caplan, a Vietnam War veteran who became a military psychiatrist. Caplan is retiring after losing his own son in Afghanistan. Before leaving, he is ordered to assess one last soldier, a young specialist, who stubbornly insists that he is “good to go” back to his unit in Afghanistan. Caplan soon discovers, however, the soldier is tortured by nightmares and flashbacks. Unexpectedly, the soldier’s story begins to lift Caplan’s amnesia for his own horrors in Vietnam. The two men launch on parallel journeys of the heart that change them forever.
