This is a must see! No scripts, no sets, no second takes, no lighting, everything in the movie is as it was seen live by the producer Terry Sanders. If you want to know the reality of what medicine in the Army is like and how soldiers wounded in Iraq are cared for, don't listen to all the media hype about the Walter Reed scandal, go see this movie. It intertwines 3 stories about Army medical care. First, it follows the saga of soldiers wounded in Iraq and their journey home through hospitals in Iraq, then Germany and finally Walter Reed in Washington D.C. Second, it chronicles the stories of the doctors, nurses and medics that care for the wounded. Finally, it follows students training to be military doctors at the "West Point" of military medicine, the Uniformed Services University at the Naval Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland.
