Fighting for Life is a powerful, sobering and emotional feature documentary portrait of American military medicine interweaving three stories:
Fighting for Life
  • Military doctors, nurses and medics, working with skill, compassion and dedication amidst the vortex of the Iraq War.
  • Wounded soldiers and marines reacting with courage, dignity and determination to survive and to heal.
  • Students at USU, the “West Point” of military medicine, on their journey toward becoming career military physicians.
The film follows 21 year-old Army Specialist Crystal Davis, from Iraq to Germany to Walter Reed Hospital in Washington DC, as she fights to recover and “bounce back” from the loss of a leg.

The filmmakers had extraordinary access to combat support hospitals in Iraq, medevac flights with wounded soldiers, and military hospitals in Germany and the United States.
