October,1972. In a city somewhere in the American Midwest, Carla is trying to rebuild her life. Her husband is gone – killed in Vietnam. Now, under the watchful eye of her mother-in-law, she must raise her young son whilst struggling to avoid the morbid sympathy of her local community. But everything changes when an unexpected and mysterious soldier arrives on her doorstep.

Punctuated with a sharp and often painful wit, Purple Heart is a deeply moving meditation on love, loss and grief.

Cast : 2M, 2F
