" When I Came Home" is a documentary film about homeless veterans in

returning combat veterans and the battle many must fight to receive
their benefits from the Veterans Administration.

suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and living out of his
car in Brooklyn, the film reveals a failing system and the veteran�€™s
struggle to survive after returning from the war." When I Came Home"
follows Herold�€™s battle with homelessness and PTSD as he tries to
get help from the VA, city agencies, and various veterans
With temperatures dropping in New York, Herold meets fellow vet Paul
Rieckhoff, founder of the country�€™s largest Iraq veteran advocacy
organization. What follows is a media blitz that transforms the young,
homeless veteran into the leader of a new movement.
