Veteran Reconnaissance Marine Adam and his wife Victoria could be America’s sweethearts. But after returning from combat, Adam finds himself struggling with PTSD, increasing his prescriptions, and battling suicidal thoughts. Victoria tries to support her ever more detached husband while treating her own chronic pain in a cycle that will feel all too familiar to many Americans. Jason Maris and Danielle Bernstein’s intimate story avoids the usual trappings of mental illness and addiction documentaries by looking at the whole picture of a family over six years. Never turning away when things get difficult, the film takes a raw look at the dark and dramatic underbelly of ordinary American life and questions how we define success and demand stability in an unstable world. -KM
