Iraq combat veteran Roy Matthews returns from one war only to fight another war at home, a war against the PTSD which threatens to destroy both Roy and his family.
With an estimated half million Iraq and Afghan war veterans wrestling with the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, stories of recovery are more important than ever. Purple Mind's Roy Matthews was trained to survive in the war zone, but that training leaves many soldiers entirely unprepared to resume their roles as husbands and fathers on their return home. Purple Mind explores how one soldier is finally able to cast off the armor of war and rebuild his life with honor.
Director Eric G. Stacey's taut family drama features a cast of accomplished actors soon to be familiar to audiences worldwide. Will Shepherd won a BEST ACTOR Award for his role as Roy Matthews at the Bare Bones International Film Festival. Emily Bridges, daughter of Beau Bridges, stars as Roy's wife, Jenna. Their daughter, Crystal, is played by Brighid Fleming.
