American Veteran

American Veteran

At age 21, Sgt. Nick Mendes was blown up by an I.E.D. in Afghanistan, paralyzing him from the neck down. This unflinching but surprisingly funny documentary follows him for the next five years as he readjusts to life in California. At the start of the story he's in a V.A. hospital unable to speak, eat or even breathe on his own. By the end he is studying for a real estate license and using mouth operated technology to play video games and even go fishing. We follow Nick as he reunites with the soldier who saved his life in Afghanistan and most amazing of all, as he falls in love with and marries his medical caregiver.
