The movie about Project REcover's Mission

“To What Remains" is a stirring, feature-length documentary from Imperative EntertainmentABRAMORAMA, and directed by Christopher Woods, that follows Project Recover’s search for the more than 80,000 Americans missing in action since World War II. 

Meet the MIAs and their families. Their service and enduring sacrifice are the motivation behind every mission.

Get to know Lt. R. R. Houle, the pilot of a TBM Avenger, and his great-nephew, Doug Berglund. Lt. Houle was Ensign George H. W. Bush’s commanding officer and good friend. George Bush always hoped he’d be able to help bring his friend home.

Catch the smile of ARM3c Walter Mintus, the radioman for Lt. Houle. His nephews, now in their 80’s still remember their “Uncle Bert '' with love and affection.

Meet SSgt. Jimmie Doyle and his son, Tommy, who dove on Dad’s crash site more than six decades later.  

To What Remains is a powerful testament to how one person’s commitment to ‘do the right thing’ motivates an ever-growing number of people who are motivated to do the same.
