His girlfriend broke up with him so he wanted to join the Army. That’s what Tom Holland’s character tells an Army recruiter, thus setting up the initial premise for Cherry. The movie ultimately turns into a harrowing crime drama about a boy from Ohio who becomes an Army medic, and then something much worse when drugs come into play.
