America’s interventions in Iraq and Afghanistan have created a generation of American veterans so severely disabled that they would have died in previous wars.
Now they are kept alive by improved medical tactics. AMERICAN VETERAN follows Sgt. Nick Mendes, for five years after he’s paralyzed from the neck down by an IED. An unflinching, romantic and often funny portrait of Nick as he studies for a real-estate license, learns to cast a fishing pole with his mouth and marries his caregiver.
