Synopsis

IRON WILL is a journey into the minds and lives of Veterans suffering with some form of post-traumatic stress (PTS). Our mission is to bring awareness and support to Veterans by honestly sharing their personal stories and daily struggles. PTSD claims the lives of over 20 veterans a day!

IRON WILL is more than "just a film” to us filmmakers. In fact, many of us have lost dear friends, loved ones and family to PTS (mental illness/depression via suicide). It’s painful and heartbreaking. As filmmakers and, most importantly, human beings we ask ourselves, what can we do? Our answer… is to make this documentary!
