About the film
Behind the story
As any comedian will tell you, the most poignant comedy comes from pain. And no one knows this better than a service member with a life-changing injury. The documentary features five severely wounded service members; four men and one woman — with injuries ranging from burns to amputations. They tell their stories from the moment they decided to enlist, to their experiences in combat, their struggles in coming home to heal, and the role that humor plays in their rehabilitation.
