The War Within
Author: Astrid Schult
Length: 52' or 72'
American daily life in Landstuhl, Germany: Wounded U.S. soldiers receive medical treatment at the military hospital of the U.S. Base. They and their relatives find a home away from home at the so-called “Fisher House” between the treatment processes.
Here they try to find a way back to normal life. German and American spouses who fear to lose their husbands. Returning soldiers who question their mission yet continue. A German-American life takes place behind high fences inside the military area.
All, Germans and Americans, have one thing in common: The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have left marks that everyone has to deal with alone.
