The Weight of Honor (2017)

Filmed over five years, THE WEIGHT OF HONOR follows the lives of the caregivers of veterans who have been catastrophically wounded in America's longest war. Their lives are transformed overnight to 24/7 caregivers tasked with caring for their war-wounded. The film reveals the family dynamic, their relationships before the wounds of war, and now, the uncertainties that lie ahead.

“The Weight of Honor” is the first comprehensive documentary to chronicle the lives of families caring for their
catastrophically wounded returning from wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Over the course of five years, the film follows the arc of what happens when some of America's best and strongest volunteer to protect our nation, but return home physically and emotionally broken and disillusioned. What happens when they return is not only a personal journey but also that of their family caregivers who have no training other than the love for their wounded. Our military does not prepare families for the return of a wounded warrior. “The Weight of Honor” tells their stories of strength, exhaustion, conflict, and even humor as they chart a course through the unknown.
