Later, After – playscript

What happens to people who have served their country in their life later, after the military?

Alex Hunter: ex-husband, ex-army, ex-bomb disposal officer.

Arrested after yet another bar fight, Alex is kept in custody and examined by a police psychiatrist to assess his fitness to be interviewed by police.

What follows is a verbal duel between Dr. Helen Ashton and Alex. He sees her as a well-meaning but ultimately naïve do-gooder working for them—the military family who no longer support or understand him.
