Synopsis:

War has become a part of the tapestry of America, affecting daily life in various ways since its inception. However, many of these stories are focused solely on the victor or on epic stories of men making sacrifices for their country. For the Honor and Glory explores the sacrifices women have made while being on the other side of these stories. Inspired by true events. We follow Miranda, an Irish immigrant during the height of Irish gang wars in New York, Ellie, the wife of a Tuskegee airmen, Lana, a Vietnamese warbride, and Tristan, who’s fiance navigates military discrimination. Watch as their stories come together and show the beauty of how we’re stronger together.
