Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This emotional WWI drama centers around a wealthy French farming family, headed by Raimu. Before the outbreak of hostilities, Raimu had interfered with the personal lives of his three sons. He comes to regret this when his eldest boy loses his life on the battlefield. The father himself is further punished when a barrage of gunfire renders him sightless. Paving the way for a happy ending is Raimu's second oldest boy, who selflessly agrees to marry a peasant girl whom the dead son had rendered pregnant before marching off to war.
