Synopsis

Casualties of War tells the story of Leigh, a Special Forces soldier who served with the Australian Army in East Timor. Leigh believes that the hardest part of going to war is coming home.

A year after Leigh returned from East Timor he reached breaking point and left the army. It is only now, 4 years later, he feels able to speak out about the realities of being a solider.

There is a world of silence that sits between those who have seen unspeakable acts of violence and those who have not. Casualties of War takes the audience on a journey to transcend that silence by exploring the losses shouldered by soldiers and their families in the wake of war.
