“Home is not home anymore,” says one veteran struggling with PTSD in the upcoming documentary “Searching for Home: Coming Back from War.” In the exclusive trailer above, veterans speak about their experiences in combat and the lasting psychological effects, as well as their struggles with physical and mental rehabilitation. The trailer has a tone of great reverence and respect for these past and active members of the U.S. military, and the candor with which they speak about their trauma and recovery is intimate and inspiring.

The official synopsis is as follows: “Built on the pillars of the truth, the healing and the hope, ‘Searching for Home: Coming Back From War’ is an emotional and unflinching look at returning veterans and their search for the ‘home’ they left behind, physically, mentally and spiritually. From World War II, Korea and Vietnam to modern-day conflicts, ‘Searching for Home’ is a multi-generational documentary that chronicles the journey of the men and women who have left ‘home,’ only to return to new and difficult challenges as profoundly-changed people.”

The film is part of the documentary series Link Voices and will be released by KCETLink Media Group, a partnership between LA public TV station KCET and satellite television network Link TV. ‘Searching for Home: Coming Back From War’ opens on November 11, which appropriately is Veteran’s Day.
