Set in a dugout in Aisne in 1918, a group of British officers, led by the mentally disintegrating young officer Stanhope, variously await their fate.

March 1918. C-company arrives to take its turn in the front-line trenches in northern France, led by the war-weary Captain Stanhope. A German offensive is imminent, and the officers and their cook distract themselves in their dugout with talk of food and their past lives. Stanhope, meanwhile, soaks his fear in whisky, unable to deal with his dread of the inevitable. A young new officer, Raleigh, has just arrived, fresh out of training and abuzz with the excitement of his first real posting, not least because he is to serve under Stanhope—his former school house monitor and the object of his sister’s affections. Each man is trapped, the days ticking by, the tension rising, and the attack drawing ever closer

Reviews:

"Saul Dibb's World War 1 tale of British soldiers in the trenches is a bleak, sobering experience that puts audiences through a wringer. It's also an emotional powerhouse you will not forget." ‐ Rolling Stone
