To Lose Control

Finally, my self funded drama short film 'To Lose Control' is now online! Thanks again to the Cast and Crew, Family and Friends who made this possible for me to make. Your generosity will never be forgotten!

Based on a true story. After nearly ten years of military service including operations in several war zones, a former elite soldier struggles to deal with P.T.S after leaving the armed forces. He decides to find a cure and explores a treatment method of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing before he loses control completely.
