Pink Mist tells the story of three young Bristol men deployed to Afghanistan. Within a short space of time all three return to the women in their lives – a wife, a mother, a girlfriend – all of whom must now share the psychological and physical aftershocks of their service.
Drawing upon interviews with soldiers and their families, Pink Mist illuminates the timeless human cost of war and it's all too often devastating effect upon the young lives pulled into its orbit.
