Synopsis: Almost Sunrise is a documentary film about veteran resilience and recovery. The film follows two Iraq veterans, Tom Voss and Anthony Anderson who struggle with depression upon returning home from service. Fearful of succumbing to the epidemic of veteran suicide, they seek a lifeline and embark on a 2,700-milewalk across America as a way to confront their inner pain. The film captures an intimate portrait of two friends suffering from the unseen wounds of war as they discover an unlikely treatment: the restorative power of silence and meditation and an ancient and powerful breathing technique.
A cinematic experience that juxtaposes the internal struggles of its characters against the wide-open spaces of America’s heartland. Almost Sunrise is also the first film to explore “moral injury”–the shame that many veterans experience when their experiences of war violate their moral beliefs, and a major cause of veteran suicide.
