Description

By Emily Ackerman & KJ Sanchez

Directed by KJ Sanchez

Honest, poignant, inspirational, and surprisingly funny, ReEntry is an unflinching look at the lives of Marines returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. It’s about stepping off that plane and coming home, re-entering ones life, family, and country – again.

With dialogue taken directly from interviews with privates and colonels, combat vets and clerks, and one particularly memorable family, ReEntry tells the stories you haven’t heard. It puts politics and Hollywood aside to probe the unvarnished, powerfully personal truths of those who serve and sacrifice.

How do you shift from battlefields to backyard barbecues? What’s the price paid by families when husbands, mothers, sons, and sisters go to war?
