Christmas Eve, 1914. The bloodiest war in human history is underway. In a stunning expression of humanity, front-line soldiers cross the battle field to meet each other in no man’s land and share a precious pause in the carnage. Rifles are left in the trenches, soldiers shake hands, cigarettes and chocolates are exchanged and they wish each other Merry Christmas. Based on a true story, this film serves as a grim reminder of the human cost of war, while bringing home the true meaning of brotherhood.
