A multi-dimensional portrait of Iraq War veteran Alex Sutton. Surprisingly fresh in its tone and approach, Sutton’s story unfolds in unexpected ways. Home from three combat tours, Sutton forges a new identity as a farmer in rural North Carolina. He dives into life on the farm with his new love, Jessica, but cannot shake the lingering traumas of war. His stories about battlefield experiences become unmoored from reality, cycling between states of heightened awareness and of “feeling zombified” from a cocktail of prescriptions meant to keep him stable. For us, as for Alex, what to believe about his past is uncertain. The farm becomes a terrain to unearth what is buried, what it truly means to be “the perfect soldier," and where to find the way forward.
