Three best friends, George (Chris Klein) a successful lawyer, Dixon (Jon Bernthal) a tough-as-nails cab driver, and Feller (Elijah Wood) a writer with a host of insecurities, are drafted and given 30 days to report for duty. In that time they're forced to confront everything they believe about courage, duty, love, friendship and honor.
New York, New York. The U.S. military draft is back. You have thirty days to report...Day Zero
follows the lives of three best friends in New York City who have thirty days to come to terms with their fate - the draft is back and they've been called to serve. Dixon, Rifkin and Feller grew up together in New York. Living very different lives in the same city, their childhood friendship still binds them.
Rifkin (Chris Klein) is a married lawyer whose career is on the rise. He's just made partner and is looking for any loop hole to get out of serving. Now "just isn't a good time" for him.
Feller (Elijah Wood) is working on his second novel. The first was a smash success, but his draft notice paralyzes him, causing severe writer's block. Instead he draws up his list of "Top 10 things to do before I serve."
Dixon (Jon Bernthal) drives a cab, lives a solitary life and is proud and ready to serve - until he meets someone and finally has something to lose.
Over thirty days, they will find their relationships tested as they confront long held beliefs about life, death, courage and love.
