It is December 24, 1914, on the Western Front of the Great War. Two squads of soldiers-one British, one German-face each other across the ruined terrain of No Man's Land, which holds both the bodies of their fallen comrades and the promise of certain death for anyone who attempts to reach the enemy trench. But it is Christmas Eve, and the bombardments trail off early. Then, in the darkness, someone begins to sing "Silent Night" and both sides recognize an opportunity for a brief peace unsanctioned by their commanders . . . A stirring historical drama based on the real-life decision of war-weary soldiers to put down their guns for Christmas.
