No Man’s Land – 1916: A heavily wounded officer stumbles upon two deserters – a shell shocked man-child and a crafty old soldier – plotting to flee south. Without their help, the officer will certainly lose leg or life, whilst helping could lead our deserters straight to the Courts-Martial.

Three unlikely companions, thrown together by circumstance and fate. All have already seen too much death and destruction: family, friends and comrades die.

Now, their own lives are at stake… and the battle lines are drawn.

You’ve seen the heroes – those born for war. Others, would simple do anything to survive…
