Exit Wound is a 26-minute documentary film about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. It follows Chess, a veteran of the war in Iraq, from his hometown in Washington State to a camp in the mountains of Sun Valley, Idaho, as he learns to cope with PTSD. Programs like Higher Grounds in Sun Valley are helping veterans learn to deal with the mental and physical problems that arise when soldiers return from war.

Exit Wound was filmed and produced by Hunter Holcombe. Special thanks to the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, Chess and Krianne, the Higher Ground staff, Jon Else and Spencer Nakasako.
