Hercules Falling

Youssef returns from war a broken man, unable to reintegrate into society and live with his wife and son. In a last ditch effort, he seeks refuge at a veterans’ retreat on the Danish island on Strynø, where he meets other veteran soldiers trying to live with their scars. Meanwhile, the war in Ukraine is brewing, and more and more of Youssef’s old troop announce that they are going to return to war and join the fight for peace.
