Season 12, Episode 20 Marwencol
First Aired: April 26, 2011
Jeff Malmberg's "Marwencol" tells the story of brain-damaged assault victim Mark Hogancamp, who creates a small-scale World War II town in his backyard as a unique form of therapy. He uses dolls to rebuild his hand-eye coordination; and heals his psychic wounds by developing an epic WWII tale in which his alter-ego, Capt. Hogancamp, is the hero. After his photos of the fictional engagements end up in an art magazine, however, he's forced to choose between the make-believe world and reality.
