“On the outside, he was a really good soldier. But as a person, he was also very fragile." Rivo was stationed in Afghanistan twice. But his return to a life without military equipment, uniforms, and a chain of command results in a breakdown. He constantly struggles with himself and his environment; his days consist of confusion, arguments, and tears. A hospital doctor labels him a psychopath. After four years, Hanna gives up, leaves him, and moves to Australia. And soon thereafter, Rivo, with whom she has shared her life, takes his own. Director Keedus documents these events in the past tense, combining footage from army camps in the Helmand province of Afghanistan with interviews with Hanna, while entries from her blog are read in voice-over. These fragments highlight precisely how the individual experience of war remains a void in our society.
