Most of us want to welcome veterans home, but do we know how?  This documentary offers a fiercely intimate view of life after war: the fear, anger and isolation of post-traumatic stress that affects vets and family members alike.  As we join these vets in a room for a healing retreat our perceptions are changed and at the end when this poetry is shared with a large civilian audience, we begin to understand what it is to welcome veterans back home. Their examples of unflinching honesty, courage and love lift us up, inspiring all of us once again to feel our common humanity.

Be advised that the film contains strong language and graphic descriptions of combat.
