BLOOD STRIPE explores a character that is relatively new to both U.S. policy and to movies - a fully-combat-participatory female soldier.

Co-filmmakers Remy Auberjonois and Kate Nowlin (the pair co-wrote the film, while Auberjonois directed and Nowlin stars) deftly feminize the warrior archetype while building the story to an emotional crescendo, reminding us of how little we understand post-traumatic stress beyond its definition.

It is both an unusual and universal portrait of trauma and war's cost to the individual and society.
