A film of dignity and beauty, a memorable tribute to the more than 100 000 Canadians who gave their lives in the service of their country on foreign battlegrounds. The film visits battlefields of the first and second World Wars and cemeteries where servicemen are buried. Filmed from Hong Kong to Sicily, this documentary is designed to show Canadians places they have reason to know but may not be able to visit.
