The story follows veteran, James, who on his return from service, has difficulty adapting to civilian life. With the world now very different in James’ eyes, he tries to hide his PTSD from those around him, including his wife Sarah. Following a drink-driving incident, James is eventually forced to seek help from psychologist, Dr Simon Kirby. Through their sessions together, the two men form a friendship that could ultimately end up helping them both.
The film will be made in partnership with Combat Stress and marks the fourth collaboration between Derek and director Carl Mackenzie, with psychologist Kasia Wilk set to produce. The team formed Choice Point Productions after lengthy discussions around creating narrative film projects with social impact.
