ACRONYM: The Cross-Generational Battle With PTSD

From the beginning of war, those thrust onto the field of battle have gone through their own levels of mental trauma. ACRONYM takes an in-depth and personal look at those who are experiencing, suffering from and living with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD. The film examines the common bond these brave veterans share: the demons that only war can bring.

ACRONYM features extensive interviews with veterans from WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf Wars I and II, Somalia, Iraq and Afghanistan. For some WWII veterans, they are only now dealing with their PTSD – some 70 years after serving. These are stories that must be told and ACRONYM is an incredibly touching portrayal of life with PTSD.

The film also presents different treatment options, both traditional methods and promising non-traditional techniques. And finally, after documenting the triumphs, struggles, heartbreak and sacrifice of our veterans and their families – ACRONYM looks ahead with hope.

Produced by Mountain Time Media and Transtar Entertainment Company.
