While their husbands are deployed in Afghanistan, the military wives on the base search desperately for ways to distract themselves. Every time a phone rings or a doorbell buzzes, their anxious minds assume the worst. After their knitting club crumbles when the women realize that none of them actually knit, they take a stab at forming a choir. Between a lack of organization, conflicting leadership styles, and tone-deaf choir members, the group gets off to a rough start. But through hard work and perseverance, the choir soon evolves into more than just a coping mechanism. Once the women find their voices and hidden talents, they are able to create something truly beautiful and unique. Through laughter, tears, and music, the military wives hold each other up during hardship and loss. Based on the true story of what came to be the global phenomenon of military wives choirs, MILITARY WIVES is a feel-good film about hope, strength, and coming together. — G.S.
