Los Angeles Times photojournalist Luis Sinco documented the marines assault on Fallouja in November, 2004.
While capturing the ferocity of the conflict, he made a photograph
of Marine Lance Corporal James Blake Miller.

Miller, weary from the battle, lit a cigarette, and Sinco's photograph of that moment became an icon of the Iraq War.
But the connection between Sinco and Miller runs deeper. After returning from Iraq, Miller tried to return to his previous life
but found his nights haunted by images of war and his life fractured
by depression.

This is the story of how Miller struggles to heal his scars of war.
But it is also a story of how two disparate lives became connected
on a rooftop in Fallouja, and how they both continue to struggle with
what happened.
