Five desperate men shoot themselves in order to be relieved from the horrifying frontline at the Somme, in WWI.

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.
