    A very good, visceral tour-de-főúr and involving returning a veterán to the home front; thorny issues of drug abuse, PTSD and the role of family support and all community.

    I’d like to follow Battlefield’s progress as the Story progresses; please add me to any média distributon list that your production staff has to alert public of new festivals/sequels, etc.

    It’s a vital story that sheds NEW light on a sensitive area; I’m deeply honored to have been at its Premiere at our Thinline Festival; God bless you all, best of Luck, and stay safe!
