**Post-film discussion with active duty and veteran service members.
Providing the most visceral and unflinching look into the lives of returned veterans, Of Men and War’s lens intimately follows the recovery efforts of twelve veterans suffering from PTSD. Unfiltered and emotionally charged, the film depicts the aftermath of war through the often-unseen effects of trauma and the hope found within the refuge of facilities such as The Pathway Home.
