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. You can learn more, watch the inspiring trailer and view a special message from Phil here: http://www.thepeacealliance.org/issues-advocacy/body-of-war.html
