Summary, etc.:
An Iraq war veteran wrestles with PTSD and his transition to civilian life. Tormented by hyper vigilance, insomnia, isolation and the lingering questions of his actions in combat, Johnny is visited fleetingly by Abdullah, an Iraqi teenager whom he killed in Iraq. Johnny tries to ask the lingering questions that crowd his mind, but Abdullah́s answers do not provide any respite. Johnny is frequently in a state of hyper vigilance on the bustling streets of NYC. He struggles with the helmet-cam video footage of combat that he has brought back from Iraq: The video provides Johnny with the comfort of accuracy that memory does not have, but it also induces anxiety. The film compares combat video playback to the memory of a traumatic event that many veterans experience. Real combat footage is used in the film.
