The time is World War I. The scene: a lonely trench, somewhere in the farthest reaches of the French battlefields. British "Tommy" Gary Cockrell shares the trench with his dying company commander. As he breathes his last, the commander informs Cockrell that he, Cockrell, has accidentally killed his own brother in the thick of combat. The rest of this 57-minute quota quickie finds Cockrell trying to make amends for his unintentional fratricide.
