A feature length documentary for BBC STORYVILLE
This is a love story told by a woman on a mission to save the man she loves, a husband, a son, and a father to their three young children. When British veteran Luke Dallison returned home from serving in Afghanistan he was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder & traumatic back injury. In 2017 he was medically discharged from the military.
Filmed over five years, this is a unique, intimate account of the impact of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder & physical injury upon an entire family. Now, against all odds, after receiving EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and reprogramming) trauma therapy & ground breaking stem-cell therapy in America, the man Nikita fell in love with is well on the path to recovery, with a renewed hope for life. “He kisses me every morning and tells me he loves me. It’s amazing to have that Luke back. He’s my soul mate, who am I without him?”
