ACRONYM: The Cross-Generational Battle With PTSD

22 U.S. veterans take their own lives EVERY DAY
75 veterans attempt suicide EVERY DAY

One is too Many

ACRONYM is a gripping, vivid and real account of the invisible trauma war leaves behind. Regardless of their combat tours in different wars, many U.S. veterans living with PTSD share the same common enemy. ACRONYM takes a different approach to examining this important topic, with veterans sharing their most personal stories of both horror and triumph. The documentary does not place blame, nor does it suggest a singular approach to “solving” the issue. PTSD is a very personal and individual problem. The film presents both traditional methods and promising non-traditional techniques to PTSD and stress management. After documenting the triumphs, struggles, heartbreak and sacrifice of our veterans and their families, ACRONYM looks ahead with hope.
