We bet you're busy trying to catch up on the Oscar nominated films just in time for the big awards and the red carpet this February. As you might guess, the road to the Oscars is a long and arduous journey for young filmmakers none of whom get to the top without the help of friends, family, co-workers, and their community. Films like this don't have a chance to really compete without the help of people like you to bring this unique material to light.
100% of your ticket purchase will be donated to complete the post production work for the film to hit the festival circuit.
Our culture has always had to deal with war and soldiers returning home from war, but never before have we seen a film dedicated to deal with female soldiers returning home from war. This lack of representaion really inspired Tarique & Alan as dramatists and filmmakers to craft a story that would be relevant, emotional, and fill an important gap in perspective.

Please consider making a donation online if you love to come but can't make it. Any amount helps!
