The Angelika Dallas Mockingbird Station

From a snowy small town in Northern Michigan to the mountains of
Afghanistan and back, WHERE SOLDIERS COME FROM follows the
four-year journey of childhood friends, forever changed by a faraway
war.
A documentary about growing up, WHERE SOLDIERS COME FROM,
is an intimate look at the young men who fight our wars and the
families and town they come from. Returning to her hometown,

Director Heather Courtney gains extraordinary access following these
young men as they grow and change from teenagers stuck in their
town, to 23-year-old veterans facing the struggles of returning home.

“Packs a savage but understated punch.”
— Andrew Barker, Variety

A rich document from an enclosed world of youth.”

— Aaron Hillis, LA Weekly
