Directed by Sam Mendes, this film tells the story of two young British soldiers during the First World War who are ordered to deliver a message calling off an ill-advised attack soon after the German retreat to the Hindenburg Line, the German defense position built during the winter of 1916–17 on the Western Front, during the German Operation Alberich in February and March 1917. This message is especially important to one of the young soldiers, as his brother is taking part in the pending attack. It is based in part on an account told to Mendes by his paternal grandfather, Alfred Mendes.
