‘Set towards the end of WWI, the action takes place in a bomb-crater in the middle of no-man’s-land. In the confusion of battle, Steven, a member of the 36th Ulster Division takes cover in the crater little realising who else is in there. Siegmund, a German soldier and Paddy a member of the 10th Irish Division also have chosen to seek shelter there.’

‘Trapped by the ongoing battle and without munitions or supplies, the three men, who would consider themselves as natural enemies, talk to each other, but will the forces that divide them lead to conflict on a much smaller scale?’
