It follows five severely injured service members embarking on a new and challenging journey as they write and perform stand-up comedy with the help of the best in the business, comedians like Lewis Black, Zach Galifianakis, B.J. Novak and Bob Saget. As part of the film the warriors also tell their poignant stories of what they have gone through and the role that humor plays in their rehabilitation. The film culminates in a live performance event at top Los Angeles comedy clubs,The Improv and the Laugh Factory.
