Coping With Post-Traumatic Stress in 'Battle Scars'

In the new movie Battle Scars (opening July 14th in theaters and also available On Demand), soldier Luke Stephens (Zane Holtz) returns from service in Afghanistan with post-traumatic stress and unthinkable physical wounds suffered in an IED explosion. He gets caught up in a criminal underworld every bit as challenging as his previous life in a war zone.

He crashes with his brother Nicky (Ryan Eggold) and tries to forget the war but his veteran father (David James Elliott) won't let him. Luke hangs out at a strip club and meets Michelle (Heather McComb), who leads him into a brutal situation that both puts him in danger and brings back the adrenalin jolt he felt in Afghanistan. We've got a promotional clip for the film.


And here's a trailer.
