WWI veteran Jack lives a solitary, isolated existence, straggling to come to terms with life after the war and haunted by memories of the horror and bloodshed of the trenches. His only company is the ghost of a long- dead friend until his insular existence is shattered by the unexpected arrival of Masaru, an escaped and desperate Japanese POW. Jack's disturbing past is flung into the here-and-now as the shocking events of this new war arc thrust into his world, triggering flashbacks to the pain and destruction of the blood-soaked fields of Flanders. But together the two men, from different cultures and continents, discover common ground and form an uneasy yet heartfelt bond, sealed by fear, hope and the need to survive in a world fraught with peril.

Relentlessly down in the mouth. Not a glimmer of anything uplifting, happy or hopeful. Just grime, sweat and misery.
