Badland (2007)

Film details


Drama. Jerry is a Marine reservist who was a young patriot and idealist when he served in the first Gulf War. But when he is called up for deployment to Afghanistan and Iraq, Jerry is an older and embittered father of three. Jerry returns a changed man, transformed by horrors committed. He lives a life of poverty, his children afraid of his outbursts of rage, his wife, Nora, unsympathetic to his suffering. When Jerry discovers that Nora has betrayed him, his anger and despair drive him to commit an act so terrible that nothing he has experienced in combat could have prepared him for.
