Can you imagine the life of a soldier upon his return home? The horrors and hardships of a war can cause a great deal of both physical and psychical issues. Some of these issues which need immediate attention are PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and the process of returning to the normal pace of everyday life in the time of peace. The focus of this documentary is on a group of soldiers who suffered greatly due to war and the process of rehabilitation which is as delicate as the state of these soldiers.

These brave people share their experiences with the audience by speaking about the horrors which they witnessed, and also through the process of personal healing and returning to their lives prior to the war.
