We Men Are Lions
$15 (*Film Block)
Steven, a young marine scout sniper on combat leave from Afghanistan, returns home for the first time since leaving after high school. His failure to reconnect with his family and friends, and to a way of life that was once comfortable, triggers a rapid descent into an unstable perception of both himself and the world around him. What was originally a vacation from a war zone, morphs into an environment so foreign, it drives him to the brink of complete destruction of those closest to him.
