This docu is an excellent and very candid look first boys, who later in the film, are now men, and their families, friends, and girlfriends living in a small town in the U.P. on the tail end of existence.We learn early on that not everyone joins war just to fight..in a depressed economy a signing bonus of 20,000 feels enormous at a young age, but innocence lost comes at a much higher cost. The film has a constant sense of depression that shows in the abandoned mine buildings, factories and empty shops on stormy days. It was then mirrored with a similar depression of Afghanistan and its decline. However, what shines through is the spirit of young men and their hopes. It was striking how similar the two areas were. Remote and yet connected. This wasn't lost on these soldiers either. They felt a kinship to the Afghans that could only come from empathy gained by common ground. An outstanding film, I hope there is an update made in the future so we can see how these young men are doing.

The phrase “come from” is an Upper Michigan phrase (and other places). In the biography, these four boys grow up and “come from” the U.P. of Michigan. When these men travel to Afghanistan, they “come from” the U.P. When they return to the United States, these soldiers “come from” Afghanistan.

This is their story of their travels and their return, and the battles they endure in both places. This straight story describes the defining moments in their lives. These damaged heroes, who fight to survive in Afghanistan, and continue their fight upon return to the United States, where their battle does not end (participation in society).

One dad says it all: “You will never be the same once you go there.”
