Battle Scars examines the war experience as well as the wrenching change many veterans face upon returning home. Luke Stephens (Zane Holtz) shows up on his brother Nicky (Ryan Eggold)’s doorstep after a tour of duty in Afghanistan. Suffering from both Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (P.T.S.D.) and physical wounds unseen but devastating, Luke wants nothing more than to forget the war, but his veteran father (David James Elliott) won’t let him. At a local strip club, run my a ruthless killer (Fairuza Balk), Luke crosses paths with Michelle (Heather McComb) who leads him into a violent world every bit as dangerous and isolating as the brutality Luke so desperately tried to leave behind in Afghanistan.
