The Return of the Soldier

It is 1916. The First World War, a waking nightmare of gore and mud, is being waged in France. At home, in the calm of the English countryside, the horror of the trenches is just beginning to seep into the dreams of those who wait. As one man fights to regain his memory, three women come to terms with the shell-shocked veteran who returns from the war.
