Description: James returns from Iraq to face a new battle -- reintegrating into his small-town life in Texas. His wife, his mother, and his friend provide support, but they can't fully understand the pain he feels since his tour of duty ended. Lonely, James reconnects with an army buddy, but their reunion also exposes the different ways that war affects people. This moving, taut story of redemption and reconstruction extends beyond a post-traumatic-stress-disorder narrative. O'Nan is heartbreaking as he explores the depths of his internal struggle; Ferrera fearlessly tackles her role of a young wife in turmoil. THE DRY LAND is about one man's fight within his own terrain-his country, home, and mind-and his journey to rebuild what he's lost.
