A view of The Great War through the war diary and private letters of five Canadian soldiers and one nurse. Between the lines written on paper, there lies an unspoken horror censored by war and propriety. With war footage, historical photos and readings of excerpts from the diary and letters, this compelling and powerful film breathes life into history, revealing the human face and heart of the conflict.

Directed by Claude Guilmain, 2008
