Since 2001 over 280,000 women have been sent to the Middle East to serve in the War on Terror. Often traumatized by their experiences, they return home changed. Terra Firma weaves together the stories of three female veterans who were among the first to deploy, serving in Afghanistan, Kuwait and Iraq.
Through intimate interviews these courageous women share their motivations for joining the service, their experiences as females in the military and the impact of war on their lives.
After struggling for years with combat related PTSD, they have each found ways to heal the hidden wounds of war through farming. The story of these three women will serve to inspire and empower other women veterans to find purpose and direction, and provide them with a new way to look at healing.
