L'ame en sang / On the Bridge
When these U.S. soldiers left home, their patriotism was firm, their convictions intense. As they return from Iraq, nothing is clear. They are in-between, they are on the bridge. Their bodies and souls have been wounded or broken. How can they re-learn what it means to be human and stay in the world of the living?Country: France/USA
