Walk With Frank

This powerfully resonant film about the cost of war follows Frank Romeo, an infantry soldier critically wounded in Vietnam, who celebrates his 70th birthday by walking 750 miles from Buffalo to NYC to call attention to his PTSD and help trauma survivors, one step at a time. Nerve damage in his spine, a prosthetic leg, and artificial knees fail to deter him on his inspiring journey, sharing lessons learned from his dark days with drug and alcohol abuse, prison, and family discord. Frank’s compassion and emotional truth-telling begin to catalyze a movement as countless veterans and other post-trauma victims shed deep shame, find their voice, and say aloud the cathartic words: “I have mental illness”.
