Adventure Not War

25 mins


After serving in the Army in Iraq, Stacy Bare found himself back home, abusing drugs and alcohol, and on the verge of becoming a statistic. He no longer knew who he was. So Bare convinced two army buddies to deploy on a return mission to Iraq, to, of all things, make a ski movie. Racked by survivor’s guilt and reliving the horrors of their tours of duty, the amateur skiers are challenged to find redemption on rickety towropes and bony couloirs. This time around, they are not invading soldiers, but mountain lovers, building cultural bridges, working toward peace and rewriting a happier ending to their stories.
