This is a true story, in part, of one soldier's experience in the Battle of the Bulge in 1944. Liberty has been taken with the character Sergeant Mark Weston (not his real name) who drove a truck on the “Red Ball Express” and returned to his unit. The time spent in the Belgium village is accurate as told by the sergeant. Christmas Eve in the fox hole was as described. Prisoners were taken, but not to the extent shown here.
This story is based on a true event. Names have been changed but the course of the narrative follows, in part, the epic story of young Sheri Walker who takes years to find her family whom she believed had abandoned her. Only her father knows the answers to her questions; but he feels the truth would cause more problems.
Running Time: Approx. 52 Min.
