The Irritable Heart is a documentary film chronicling the life of Marine Staff Sergeant Travis Twiggs, a decorated Iraq war veteran. Sergeant Twiggs developed Post Traumatic Stress Disorder ("PTSD") in 2005 during his third tour in Iraq. This film will explore Travis's complex family life, the treatment he received from the military's mental healthcare system, his painful struggle with PTSD, and the heartbreaking end of his life. Through the evocative story of Travis Twiggs, The Irritable Heart seeks to shed light on the serious problem of PTSD and the toll it takes on our returning veterans and their families.
