MILITARY VETERAN PTSD MENTAL ILLNESS | DISCHARGE Short Film



A combat war veteran finds himself struggling beyond the battlefield while attempting to repair a broken relationship.

Suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), military veteran Max (Marcus Ajose) comes home from tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and finds himself battling inner demons. The dark side of war emerges when Max least expects it. He is haunted by his time in combat and grows increasingly detached from reality as he tries to integrate back into civilian life. Max goes through town in search of his girlfriend Maya (Jessica Rizo) in hopes of repairing their broken relationship.
