Based on Yvonne Latty's acclaimed 2006 book of the same name, and adapted and directed by three-time Helen Hayes Award-winner Douglas C. Wager, In Conflict captures the unheard voices and unpredictable experiences of seventeen Iraq War veterans whose lives have been changed forever.

Following Culture Project's critically acclaimed production of George Packer's Betrayed, In Conflict explores the Iraq War from the American perspective and asks a different set of questions. What is the nature of patriotism and service in today's America? Why is their re-assimilation process so brutal? Why are these young soldiers essentially disenfranchised from the political process of war? And who is - or should be - held accountable?
