Going to war brings terror, pain and grief, but also exhilaration and a sense of purpose. Authors Karl Marlantes and Sebastian Junger help make sense of this paradox, while military veterans reveal the truths of combat with unflinching candor.
The new documentary captures the gritty mental and physical transformation of troops in training and follows them into the transformative experience of combat. By delving into the psychologically complex world of warfare and its aftermath, the film reveals the challenges service members face when they return home and rejoin civilian society, revisit their life goals and aspirations, and ultimately redefine themselves.
