This emotional documentary follows the stories of American soldiers and their battle with PTSD and physical injuries post war. America has always been plagued with appropriately addressing the psychological and physical damage that needs to be repaired once our brave soldiers make it back home. This documentary shines light on the positive impact surfing can have on these veterans.
