The Ground Truth follows a group of American veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, discussing their recruitment, training, time served, and afterthoughts regarding the war.  Nearly each individual interviewed has gone on to oppose the war, with many beginning their own anti-war campaigns.

Many of the vets struggle with both physical and mental impairment including lost limbs, paralysis, and posttraumatic stress disorder.  Each tries to reintegrate into everyday life amidst the tragedies and horrors they have both left behind and participated in.

The picture was nominated for a Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival.
