Hearing from three ex-squaddies, this insightful, humorous and quietly powerful documentary, highlights the practical and emotional challenges that many in the military experience as they try to adapt to an unfamiliar way of life.
After 22 years, Staff Sergeant Paul Wilkie is looking forward to securing a new job and moving on with his life, but just having his skills recognised is proving difficult.
Corporal Andy Reid, is entering Civvy Street as a triple amputee. He must negotiate being lauded as a hero, and becoming a public figure, whilst at the same time coming to terms with a future as a disabled father.
Despite having left the forces a few years ago, Corporal Dave Edwards still suffers both mentally and physically from his time in service. Even everyday activities such as a supermarket visit can cause real distress. Dave is wracked with guilt about how his anger and trauma has affected his 15-year-old son.
None of the men regret their time in the army but they all are forever changed by it. This film is an honest portrayal of the challenges they face on return to Civvy Street.
