Overview / Aperçu

In 1915, a young British soldier experiences the horror of the trenches. On the front line, he miraculously survives a bombing attack but loses the gas masks he was supposed to deliver to his regiment. The trench walls have collapsed, exposing the whole platoon, which is now trapped on the front line. Edwin Childs must gather the load of gas masks scattered in no-man’s-land before the gas is released at dawn. Edwin is hiding a secret about his true abilities; he has a supernatural gift. He can heal wounds. With each scar, he sacrifices a part of himself to save lives.

En 1915, Edwin Childs, un jeune soldat britannique, vit l’horreur de la guerre. En première ligne, il survit miraculeusement à un bombardement mais perd les masques à gaz qu’il devait livrer à son régiment. Les murs des tranchées s’étant effondrés, toute sa section est coincée. Il va devoir récupérer le chargement de masques éparpillés dans le no-man’s land avant que des gaz toxiques ne soient relâchés au petit matin. Edwin cache un lourd secret sur ses véritables aptitudes, un don surnaturel : il peut soigner des blessures.
