In this psychological drama, director William Boyd takes viewers into the minds and emotions of the young British soldiers who are preparing to fight in what will later be known as the Battle of the Somme, one of the deadliest battles in modern history.  Britain lost more soldiers in the first day of this battle than any other in its military history. The film is a powerful rendering of those overwhelmingly young soldiers at the epicenter of the Great War and the enormous psychological toll the war had on them.
