Psychologist and author Paula J. Caplan grew up with stories her father told about being Captain of an all-Black battery in The Battle of the Bulge. Unable to remember these, she met with and listened to hundreds of veterans whose deeply human reactions to war and rape are mistakenly, alarmingly diagnosed as mental illness. Through listening, Paula takes us on a journey of connection and healing. A film about the power of love and connection.
