    • Synopsis
    • Life of women after military service is seldom portrayed in films.

      The drama "Stand Down Soldier" tells the story of Sergeant Stacy Armstrong who returns home from three deployments suffering with Paustromatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Soon after her return, she and her husband realize their 20-year marriage is about to be another casualty of war. Infidelity, addiction, and a tragic accident test the couple’s commitment.

      "Stand Down Soldier" very effectively brings back the bigger issues of the challenges veterans face to reintegrate civil society and the issue of the protection of women in the military by going to the personal life of this one female soldier, her adjustment and mental health issues, the major disruptions her return brings into the lives of her loved ones, and the structures she, the military and her family use to help her cope with her issues and get back to a normal life.
