who, in an attempt to put their haunting Iraq combat experiences behind them, embark on an extraordinary journey – a 2,700 mile trek on foot across America.

Will this epic pilgrimage be enough to release them from their self-‐destructive impulses and give them the chance to begin life anew?

While  the  film  exposes  some  of  the  brutality  of  war,  it  doesn’t  dwell  there.   It’s ultimately a story of hope and potential solutions.  Most importantly, the film reveals the promise of holistic practices for healing. 

When  Tom  signs  up  for  a  special  breathing  workshop  for  veterans,  he  must  confront  his  deepest  spiritual  identity.  He  encounters  Father  Thomas  Keating,  a renowned Trappist monk who has counseled veterans for decades, who gently illuminates need  to  turn  inward  to  achieve  true  peace and  gives  guidance  that  culminates  in  a  remarkable inner transformation rarely depicted on screen.

Where  the  stereotypes  of  “the  broken  veteran” or  “homecoming  hero”  leave  off,  the  film continues  onward,  offering  an  unprecedented  portrait  of  those  who  return  from  war;  rich, complex,  far  more  hopeful.  Almost  Sunrise  allows  us  to  connect  with  a  universal  human  aspiration for happiness and through Tom and Anthony’s genuine search for it, be reminded of our common soaring possibilities.

The  film  also  acts  as  an  urgent  call  for  communities  to  better  understand  these  deep-­‐seated  psychic wounds, and for the government to acknowledge and finally treat moral pain by using methods  other  than  pills.   

Almost Sunrise deftly and movingly demonstrates the promise of holistic healing practices is on the horizon in a way that we cannot afford to ignore.

As part of Project Help’s mission, the holist element is a major contributing factor being made available to our veterans and their families.
