WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In 1914, an extraordinary event took place during World War I. Thousands of men put down their weapons, left the trenches, and met their enemies for a Christmas Day truce. They exchanged gifts, sang songs, and buried each other's dead, but upon orders resumed fighting the next day. It's a beautiful story that puts a human face on war, with music and text taken from letters, journals, and war documents.
