For each of the more than four thousand U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq, there is an American family undone by grief. "Never Coming Home" takes us inside these families, to meet the people and sift through the emotions that are left behind.

Never Coming Home

In 2004, audio producer Zac Barr and photojournalist Andrew Lichtenstein traveled throughout the country meeting the families of some of the thousands of men that died in the Iraq war. This film s an intimate, tactile picture of what they found.
