Body of War is an intimate and transformational feature documentary about the true face of war today. Meet Tomas Young, 25 years old, paralyzed from a bullet to his spine - wounded after serving in Iraq for less than a week.

Body of War unfolds on two parallel tracks. On the one hand, we see Tomas evolving into a powerful voice against the war as he struggles to deal with the complexities of a paralyzed body. And on the other, we see the historic debate unfolding in the Congress about going to war in Iraq.

The film takes a bold political view of the build-up and rush to war. It is a soul stirring film and an important cautionary tale - and why we need to change course in our nation, away from violence, and towards more sustainable and healthy ways of dealing with conflict.
