The Welcome offers a fiercely intimate view of life after war: the fear, anger, and isolation of post-traumatic stress that affects vets and family members alike. As we join them in a small room for an unusual five day healing retreat, we witness how the ruins of war can be transformed into the beauty of poetry. Here our perceptions are changed, our psyches strained, and our hearts broken. And at the end, when this poetry is shared with a large civilian audience, we begin to understand that all of us are a vital piece of the Welcome as veterans try to find the way back home. Their examples of unflinching honesty, courage, and love lift us up, inspiring all of us once again to feel our common humanity, always the first casualty of war.
