When a young military wife gets news that her Marine husband has been severely wounded in combat, she discovers that their life ahead is going to be an overwhelming — yet amazing — journey. Birthday is not pro-war or anti-war. It is a simple story of love, strength and courage through enormous adversity.
The filmmaker, a veteran himself, wanted to express his appreciation for the sacrifices our wounded veterans and their spouses have made over the past decade. This is his ode to two souls forging ahead during enormously difficult times, like so many vets and their families have had to do and are still doing.
