And here’s the elevator pitch: Most
“soldier-coming-home-from-war” films deal with a soldier battling PTSD,
we wanted to flip that well-worn premise on its head: What if the
soldier who returns if fine, but it’s his country that’s lost its mind?

America was built on the backs of immigrants and protected
by the courage of veterans – yet both of these groups have grown
increasingly marginalized in today’s society. The best way to explore
such complex issues in the context of an independent film was to create
an intimate love story with universal implications.
