Movie Info

Having served their country in Iraq and Afghanistan, Nichole, Hope, Rachel and Andrea know that, for many, the war isn't over. They are concerned and want to do something for the 55,000 homeless women veterans, whose stories mirror their own. While struggling with PTSD, divorce, serious illness, and military sexual abuse, competing in Ms. Veteran America ignites an emotional roller coaster for the women. Their stories build through riveting drama to the grand finale of the Ms. Veteran America event itself as they transform before our eyes and recover lost parts of self and identity. Leaving us with a deepened understanding of the diverse women who join the military and what happens to them when they return from war.
