Neon Tommy was on the red carpet for "The Dry Land", starring America Ferrera, Wilmer Valderrama, Jason Ritter and Ryan O'Nan. Written and directed by USC alumni Ryan Piers Williams (who is engaged to America Ferrera), the story focuses on the post-traumatic stress disorder suffered by a solider when he returns to his hometown of Texas from war.

Ryan O'Nan and America Ferrera take on the lead roles, whilst Jason Ritter and Wilmer Valderrama take the supporting roles to tell this touching story. Post-traumatic stress disorder is a very real issue being faced by today's soldiers of war, and Williams focuses on portraying it accurately to raise awareness and understanding.
