On Memorial Day, a day of remembrance and recognition of those who have died in wars, a 65-minute film about five men and women who have pulled the trigger and then integrated this act into their lives. Ultimately these stories testify to the resilience of the human spirit and hopefulness for the future. http://rockville.patch.com/events/memorial-day-film-showing-hidden-battles http://rockville.patch.com/events/memorial-day-film-showing-hidden-battles
