Description:
  Healing A Soldier's Heart, follows the courageous journeys of four Vietnam veterans, all suffering from severe PTSD, who return to Vietnam to finally face the demons that have been haunting them for almost forty years. Under the guidance of Dr. Edward Tick, the vets venture back to the actual trauma sites – the places where they fought and killed their former enemies, or saw their own friends and comrades die.

This film provides an unforgettable journey back to Vietnam, through what Dr. Tick calls “their second, this time, willful descent into hell,” and carries viewers into the hearts and minds of the four veterans and their families, as they experience forgiveness and compassion from their former enemies. Through first-time contact with Vietnamese culture and Buddhist-principles of forgiveness and compassion, the four vets are led to a new state of awareness and spiritual peace.
