STRESS follows five young veterans from Pittsburgh who served in Afghanistan or Iraq after 9/11. Joe, Torrie, Mike, James and Justin tell stories of their experience in the war and their process of adjusting to civilian life back home. Veterans only make up 2% of the U.S. population, but they carry almost all of the physical and psychological burden of recent wars – a decade of trauma and injury. The film finds a unique visual language, using extreme slow motion to make the difficulties of adjusting to civilian life after the experience of war emotionally tangible for the audience.
