Bastards' Road - A Documentary Film
The memory of combat never fades. Bastards' Road is a documentary film that centers around Marine veteran Jon Hancock's 5,800 mile walk across the country.
In 2004, Hancock fought in the Battle of Ramadi with the 2nd battalion, 4th Marines historically known as the Magnificent Bastards. They suffered the highest casualty rate in the Iraq War. 1 in 4 were wounded or killed. Like many of his fellow Marine brothers, Hancock began a long battle with PTSD upon arriving back home.
After years of wrestling with alcoholism and depression, Hancock needed to make a big change in his life. He decided to embark on a monumental walk. He set out to visit fellow veterans and families of the fallen, while confronting his own demons alone on the open road.
A natural storyteller overflowing with honesty, insight, heart and hilarity, Jon is a bridge for connecting veterans to all those who love them, to civilians struggling to understand them, and to the communities that support them.
Bastards' Road is a story of pain, hope and redemption.
Up until now, Bastards' Road has been a completely self-funded passion project for aspiring filmmaker, Brian Morrison. The documentary is almost finished, aside from some very critical post-production work that remains. We are seeking donations in any amount to help raise the money needed to bring this film to completion.
