Every warrior, who ever went to battle, is still there. Every family that warrior came home to, joined that battle. They know that the person who left them to defend our freedoms never returned.
The military family knows this. They maintain the silent dignity of the service. It’s part of the unspoken Code for the families of those who serve. But for those in the civilian world, that silence goes unnoticed.
BATTLEFIELD: HOME – BREAKING THE SILENCE is an attempt to bridge the gap between those two worlds. It is about the problems they face, the obstacles they endure, and it is also about the hope of the human spirit to return to being whole again.
As the daughter of a combat Marine, the director has the unique perspective to tell that story, and shine a light on the social divide between the families of those who serve and those they protect.
