The Weight of Honor is the first comprehensive documentary to chronicle the lives of the caregivers and families of veterans who have been catastrophically wounded in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. The film’s subjects are the spouses, parents and children who give a rare glimpse into their lives, as everyone grapples with finding a ‘new normal’ after the devastating effects of wartime injuries. Filmed over five years, in many states, this journey reveals the thoughts and struggles of the caregivers tasked with the 24/7 care of once able-bodied and self-assured sons and husbands, but are now dependent on others. The life of the caregiver is often unsung and hidden. The Weight of Honor reveals disrupted lives, ongoing uncertainties, and their courage and strength as they make a new home during the most calamitous time of their lives. Included are key interviews with veterans who are now serving in congress and experts who give their insight into the new reality of what it means for a wounded warrior to come home.
