Thousand Yard Stare (EIFF)
During World War II, after suffering a crushing defeat at the hands of the Germans during the Battle of Kasserine Pass, an American soldier, Roland Rothach, finds himself lost and alone in the deserts of North Africa, where he’s soon captured and taken prisoner by a pair of German pilots. After the war, Roland returns home where he finds reintegrating with family life increasingly difficult as he suffers from flashbacks and hallucinations brought on by post-traumatic stress disorder. When his wife, Barbara, leaves with their son, Roland is left alone to face, and attempt to overcome, the pain and misery of the memories he’s tried so hard to bury. Returning home after fighting in Africa during World War II, a soldier with PTSD finds reintegrating with family life increasingly difficult as he relives the battle of Kasserine Pass.
