      “Combat taints your soul,” says one of the five catastrophically disabled veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan who relearn how to live as they learn the art of fly-fishing on a placid Montana river. Directors Shasta Grenier and Sabrina Lee capture the tough struggles, the love, and the humor, as men marked for life by the experience of killing find healing, hope, and a new sense of peace through the catch-and release of speckled trout in a unique wounded warrior program founded by a Vietnam veteran. 

      Producer/director Sabrina Lee, executive producer Steve Platcow, and Marine veteran Erik Goodge (who appears in the film) will be present for audience discussion at both screenings.

      Two screenings will take place on Saturday, February 9th: 12:30pm and 7:30pm.

      Hello!
