Summary
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
