When a young military wife receives news that her husband, whom she loves deeply, has been severely wounded in combat, she must come to terms with her grief and the difficult life in store for them. She soon realizes it will be an amazing journey no matter what.
Director’s Statement: Chris King
Birthday is not pro-war or anti-war. It is a simple story of love, strength and courage seen through enormous adversity. It is a passion project that took two years to finance and film. I am a veteran myself, and my wife Heather and I appreciate greatly the sacrifices our wounded veterans and their spouses make. This is our ode to two souls forging ahead during enormously difficult times, like so many of our veterans and their families have had to do and are still doing.
