    Many people only have a vague idea of the issues vets go through in getting back home. This is riveting, interesting and hopeful way to understand.

    Marx takes us on an amazing journey and testament to the human spirit. By first introducing us to these Veterans as real people with real struggles - it is only on the ‘retreat’ that we begin to learn the real stories of the trauma they have endured as Veterans. It is so inspiring to see the kind of healing that took place on 'The Land'; and can take place in non traditional settings! The cinematography is beautiful as our these amazing souls we get to meet. Bravo!!
