  • Being a soldier at war and being trained to kill is not the easiest thing to overcome, the best thing that such an individual can do is remain on the military base and teach the new recruits coming in if they are mentally prepared to do so, apart from that, life after war is no easy task at all

      This movie tells the story of a war veteran who has returned from the Vietnam War and is totally unprepared for the day to day activities of regular life. He manages to completely alienate himself from his family and to make matters worse, he moves away to the wilderness of the Washington State. Years

      pass and after that period of isolation, he decides to return home with hopes of reuniting with his family, but this task is easier said than done as his family has moved on with their lives without him. This movie is a representation of what life is like for all the war torn people ...

      • who are placed back into society with the trauma that was suffered in the Vietnam War and other wars in general. Being a soldier at war and being trained to kill is not the easiest thing to overcome, the best thing that such an individual can do is remain on the military base and
        teach the new recruits coming in if they are mentally prepared to do so, apart from that, life after war is no easy task at all. This movie shows more of that unknown fact than anything else, and I thing that this movie could have done a whole lot better if it was marketed better.
