The Veterans Health Alliance of Long Island and Adelphi University invite you to a screening of Blood Stripe on January 19, 6:30pm. This screening is free of charge and open to all: veterans, family members, friends and the general service provider community. A Q&A with the filmmaker/star to follow screening.
A Sergeant (Kate Nowlin) returns home to a small town in Minnesota, having just completed her third tour with the Marines in Afghanistan. Unable to sleep, wracked by paranoia and anxiety, it is clear that in addition to the shrapnel scars she bears on her torso, she carries unseen wounds. It is only a matter of time before she can no longer bottle up her trauma and a boisterous welcome home party provokes her into an explosive outburst. With nowhere to turn, she flees, taking refuge at a lakeside summer camp. But she cannot escape her inner darkness; and, ultimately, is spun so violently out of herself, she may never return.
