Storyline

The 1991 Persian Gulf War is a military triumph for the United States. But when thousands of returning veterans start to develop medical problems, it appears that the military is trying to downplay or ignore the situation. It takes perseverance on the part of military families and members of Congress to bring to light the dilemma and prompt action on the part of the government. Written by Ron Kerrigan

A thought provoking film
10 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just as some people said that agent orange was not real, some so say that gulf syndrome is not real. But this movie, although it does take some dramatic license, starts with the real stories of real veterans who have illnesses which they relate to their service in the gulf war, be it a "syndrom" or not. Regardless of what you believe, this movie is very thought provoking and motivates the audience to investigate on their own the truth behind the stories of the many veterans whose stories are told in this movie. I recommend that you see it. It is beautifully acted and filmed and Ted Dansen and Marg Helenberger are particularly impressive.
