HELL AND BACK AGAIN

What does it mean to lead men in war? What does it mean to come home -- injured physically and psychologically -- and build a life anew? In this program, two overlapping narratives are intercut -- the life of a Marine at war on the front and the life of the same Marine in recovery at home -- creating both a dreamlike quality and a strikingly realistic depiction of how Marines experience this war.
