Inspired by the best-selling novel of the same name, CHERRY follows the wild journey of a disenfranchised young man from Ohio who meets the love of his life, only to risk losing her through a series of bad decisions and challenging life circumstances. Tom Holland stars in the title role as an unhinged character who drifts from dropping out of college, to serving in Iraq as an Army medic. He is only anchored by his one true love, Emily (Ciara Bravo). When Cherry returns home a war hero, he battles the demons of undiagnosed PTSD and spirals into drug addiction, surrounding himself with a menagerie of depraved misfits.
