It all started with a classy piece of source material that tells an important story of an extraordinary time in history, where it seemed like both man and nature were conspiring to destroy us all. It's about war, it's about who gets left behind when that happens. It's about those quiet people who find the strength in them, somehow, that they didn't know they had. Set on the canvas nearing the end of the First World War, of a father who receives word that his only son has been declared "killed/missing". Leaving his home and peaceful life behind him, journey's halfway around the world through extraordinary situations to lay to rest any chance that his son was coming home.
