From Academy Award-winner Irwin Winkler comes "Home of the Brave," the story of four American soldiers nearing the end of their tours of duty in Iraq. Shortly after learning their unit will soon return home, they are sent on one final humanitarian mission to bring medical supplies to a remote Iraqi village. The unit is ambushed and takes heavy losses. The surviving troops suffer both physical and psychological injuries. Now, as they return to the United States, four soldiers must face memories of the past as they look towards the future and return to civilian life. These are their stories. "Home of the Brave" is about hope and courage and the impact of war on both the individuals who fight it and the people close to them.
