HOMEMADE is the cinematic and profoundly intimate six-year journey with decorated Force Reconnaissance Marine Adam Sorensen as he navigates civilian life and the effects of Post Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury, and addiction on his marriage, family and work. Durational and unflinching - the film uncovers a conflict between the American ideals of success and personal well-being, igniting a crucial conversation about caring for our returning veterans and their families.
