When the Smoke Clears: A Story of Brotherhood, Resilience and Hope shares the inspiring accounts of Gil, Ofer, and Elad – young Israeli war veterans whose unthinkable battle experiences leave them with life-altering mental and physical scars. Returning to society, their experiences and trauma disconnect them from all they once valued, turning their lives upside down.
When all seems lost, a revolutionary idea gives them the hope, courage, tools and community to survive, and to embrace their identities as heroes both on and off the battlefield. Banding together in a family of wounded soldiers, they learn to face their obstacles together and discover that in conquering their pain, they might have more to offer than ever before.
