The Film

Reserved to Fight follows four Marines for three years after coming home from combat in Iraq as they struggle through social and psychological reintegration. Living among loved ones who don't yet understand them, and suffering from a psychological disorder that is difficult to acknowledge, these veterans grapple to find purpose and healing.
