Shattered Heroes tells a dramatic story based upon fictionalized accounts of a real life unit during WWII. Baker Company, 502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division. Led by Capt. James Russell, this was one of the most ill fated, misdropped units of the whole operation that, while facing overwhelming odds and greatly out numbered, still made a significant impact upon D-Day. Capt. Russell deals with many significant traumatic events in such a short time frame that it would dramatically effect anyone. You see how his life unfolds from the result of his experiences and how it affects him and his family. This film Relates to many veterans right now who were not treated properly for PTSD.
