SESSION TIMES - THIS WEEK
March, 1918. C-company arrives to take its turn in the front-line trenches in northern France, led by the war-weary Captain Stanhope (Sam Claflin). A German offensive is imminent, and the officers distract themselves in their dugout with talk of food and their past lives.
Young new officer Raleigh (Asa Butterfield) arrives fresh out of training and abuzz with the excitement of his first real posting – not least because he is to serve under his former school house monitor Stanhope.
Each man is trapped, the days ticking by, the tension rising, and the attack drawing ever closer.
