Jon Jackson attempted to take his life, returning home after six tours overseas and "loosing his sense of purpose of what it means to be a warrior". But Jon took a stand and developed Comfort Farms, a sustainable therapy farm set up to serve the community and his fellow Veterans, many of which suffer from the same lack of purpose. Through a variety of narratives we hear the perspectives of various characters and combat Veterans, including a Veteran turned therapist and another who fought in the Philippines during WW2, a butcher and chef who's a proponent of humane animal slaughter, and the perspective of farm founder Jon Jackson who's focus is on a unique form of agro-cognitive behavioral therapy and challenging culture to respect what they eat. These narratives come together and form an interesting juxtaposition that bring up a number of interesting questions, not just about Veterans' issues per se, but about the human condition, the nature of sacrifice, love, life, death and triumph.
