The director has extraordinary access following these young men as they grow and change from reckless teenagers, to soldiers looking for roadside bombs in Afghanistan, to 23-year-old veterans dealing with the silent war wounds of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and PTSD.  Dominic Fredianelli, featured in the film, will take questions, talk about how Afghanistan changed his life and discuss veteran’s issues.
