ABOUT

Their lives are changed. They all suffer from PTSD. They have all had experiences that have definitively changed them and their lives.

Four war veterans are fighting their very own battle trying to find their way back into the world. A battle in which they challenge their PTSD, their shame and lack of confidence in the most ultimate and exposed way.

With the film classic Deer Hunter as a guide, Fix & Foxy invite five war veterans to go back in time and meet themselves and who they once were. They revisit the life-changing moments in an attempt to recreate their lives. The life they lived before it fell apart.
