Every year, almost 40,000 people are killed by guns in America. Each shooting devastates and forever changes the victim's family and friends. The new feature documentary, Behind the Bullet, explores a side of gun violence that's rarely talked about- the impact a shooting has on the shooter.
The film answers the question, what does shooting and killing someone do to a person whose intentions are good. Each subject in the film tells the story of how the pull of a trigger, changed them emotionally, physically, psychologically, and spiritually.
The complexity of each scenario plays out as they describe the conflicting emotions and moral injury that comes after a self-defense shooting, an accidental shooting or an unintentional shooting.
