"Fighting for Life," is a powerful and emotional documentary, a real life “MASH” for our times.  Interweaving three stories, the film follows American military doctors, nurses and medics on the front lines of the Iraq War, young wounded soldiers and marines determined to survive and to heal, and students of USU, the "best medical school no one's ever heard of," on their journey toward becoming career military physicians.  The filmmakers had extraordinary access to combat support hospitals in Iraq, to medevac flights with wounded soldiers, and to military hospitals in Germany and the United States.
