Synopsis Take Two

The story starts with two best friends, Edward and Will playing in a war torn environment. They are dueling with sticks and using trashcan lids and pieces of wood as shields. All is going well until they bump into a tall ominous soldier. The solider is Edwards father and he is very upset to see his son socializing with someone from the other side. Edwards father grabs him by the arm and drags him away.
Cuts to the present where both Edwards and Will are now soldiers. They are patrolling the area and almost shoot each other before recognizing each other.

(I'm still unsure how I should end this story, and I'm sure there will still be many revisions. Any recommendations or comments are greatly appreciated.)
