Bastards’ Road (2020)


Bastard’s Road (Coming Home from War is Just the Beginning) is a 2020 documentary film about Marine Combat Veteran Jon Hancock and his battle with PTSD.


Like many combat veterans, transitioning back to civilian life was very difficult for Jon Hancock. After years of struggling, Jon decided to take an epic journey across the country – on foot. Walking nearly 6,000 miles alone, Jon confronts the demons that had overtaken his life. Visiting his fellow 2/4 Marines – known as the The Magnificent Bastards – and families of their fallen along the way, Jon finds a mission greater than his own redemption. Veterans everywhere are struggling with PTSD. They are taking their own lives at an alarming rate – 50% higher than nonveterans. With remarkable honesty, insight, and humour, Jon’s journey is uniquely positive. It is about changing the ways one relates to traumatic memories. It is about beginning the healing process.
