Send To A Friend   Print Page
From a snowy small town in Northern Michigan to the mountains of Afghanistan and back, WHERE SOLDIERS COME FROM follows the four-year journey of childhood friends, forever changed by a faraway war. Returning to her hometown, director Heather Courtney gains extraordinary access following these young men as they grow and change from teenagers stuck in their town, to 23-year-old veterans facing the struggles of returning home in this intimate look at the young men who fight our wars that goes beyond the guns and policies to examine the effect of an ongoing war on parents, loved ones, and the whole community.
