A military captain makes a decision that brings about tragic consequences in director Nicholas Pinks' short film study of the Battle of Somme. The year is 1916, and in order to gain intelligence for their forthcoming mission Captain Philip Kemble prepares to send his squadron on a daring raid into enemy territory. Though Captain Kemble's plan to send in 2nd Lieutenant Daniel Walker go quickly awry when the officer is injured upon arrival and medical officer Captain Victor Scott advises against the mission, a severe shortage of men leaves the captain no other choice than to follow through with the plan despite Lieutenant Walker's unstable condition. As the raid commences, it rapidly becomes apparent that the outcome will be tragic for all involved. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
