Based on Pat Barker's 1991 novel, Regeneration, this film follows the stories of a number of officers in the British Army during World War I who are brought together in Craiglockhart War Hospital to be treated for various physical and mental war traumas. It features the story of Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon, two of England's most important World War I poets. Sassoon sends an open letter to the British newspaper, The Times, criticizing the conduct of the war and the unnecessary sacrifice of so many men at the front lines.
