Five desperate men shoot themselves in order to be relieved from the horrifying frontline at the Somme, in WWI. A court-martial decides to punish them by leaving them alone in no-man's land, to be killed in the crossfire. Then all hell breaks loose and they all die. Or do they? One of these men's fiance, a crippled young girl, receives information that makes her suspect her boyfriend might still be alive. So she embarks on a painful, long and often frustrating ordeal to find out the truth.
