“Dear mum, things are a bit tough right now. But don’t worry–I’m ok. I’ll tell you about it when I get back.”
Afghanistan: 2009. Under bright blue skies, a small girl stands and watches the soldier. She smiles, just like his sister...Ryan is there to see the world, learn a trade, get a life.
Training is complete, combat is a buzz; he’s part of a team, and knows his job. But on one particular hot and desperate tour of duty, Ryan sees things he can’t talk about, to anyone.
And then, when he returns home, the trouble really begins.
Created from two years of research with ex and serving soldiers, families and health professionals, A Brave Face explores Post-Traumatic Stress, an unseen and often unrecognised injury of war, and the impact it can have on even the closest of families.
