A relationship unfolds as a young Canadian soldier fighting in the trenches attempts to bring some sanity to his horrific situation by corresponding with his new bride back home. Actors Matt Campbell and Margaret MacPherson take on the roles of the young couple. Inspirational songs.. Kelly’s compositions and familiar songs from war times evoke memories tinged with sadness and joy that ultimately underscore the need for hope and faith in the goodness of humankind.
