All That I Can Be


All That I Can Be follows the stories of William, Dorian and Shinel as they embark on separate journeys with the U.S. Army. At once an intimate portrait and an exploration of the promises and realities of the military in post-9/11 America, this award-winning documentary reveals the lives of young people making their way in a society in which joining the military seems to be their best or only option.
