"The only thing harder than going to war is raising a 10-year-old girl." ONE HALLOWEEN is a short film that follows a Soldier, played by wounded warrior and bronze star recipient Joey Banegas, through one Halloween night as he tries to connect with his 10-year-old daughter after returning home from the war. This short film features three scarred veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars who were injured in combat. As the two find out how to be father and daughter again, they learn lessons about friendship and family. The story is based on writer/director Rebecca Murga's experience as a soldier who deployed as one of the first women attached to Army Special Forces and Navy SEALs, as well as some of the documentary she completed at Brooke Army Medical Center, in San Antonio with the wounded veterans there.
