France, Switzerland 2015 105 mins.

A secret battle consumes a dozen American combat veterans long after their return from the front in Iraq and Afghanistan. Unable to escape the battlefield that rages in their own minds, ghosts and echoes of the war fill their lives. Threats seem to spring out from everywhere. Wives, children, and parents bear the brunt of their fractured spirits, struggling to help their loved ones regain their lives. At The Pathway Home, a first-of-its-kind PTSD therapy center, the film’s protagonists resolve to end the ongoing destruction and forge meaning from their trauma. OF MEN AND WAR explores their grueling paths to recovery as they attempt to make peace with themselves, their past, and their families. In English.
