Left in Baghdad

Left in Baghdad

After losing his left arm to an IED while serving in Iraq, American soldier Ross Graydon spends six months rehabilitating at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center. LEFT IN BAGHDAD follows Ross as he returns with his wife and daughter to their home in Ft. Campbell, Kentucky. Ross resumes civilian life, never letting his new physical limitations affect his happy-go-lucky attitude.

We see Ross outfitted with a new lifelike prosthetic arm, recounting his army experiences with his daughter's school class and with fellow veterans, experiencing newfound victories like learning to maneuver a slice of pizza with a mechanical hand and optimistically planning for the future by enrolling in college. Both tragic and comic, LEFT IN BAGHDAD is the portrait of a family man meeting the challenges of his new life.
