From Shock to Awe

When trauma leaves us broken spiritually, where do we turn? Is healing even possible? In this raw and intimate film, we meet two American combat vets who struggle with anxiety, depression, and anger. VA-prescribed pharmaceuticals are ineffective. Cannabis helps only a bit. Finally, desperate for deeper healing, they turn to other options, including ayahuasca, an Amazonian brew traditionally used for healing and spiritual insights. Exhibiting deep bravery and integrity throughout their unforgettable journey home, the vets provide us with a moving and urgent opening into a much-needed discussion about trauma, Big Pharma, and what can happen next.
