Jacque, a medic in the trenches of WWI, deserts his platoon and joins a Christian monastery to flee the violence he can no longer endure. There, he deals with problems of good and evil, faith, God,
cowardice and heroism. Only by telling his story and coming to terms with it honestly can he resolve these dilemmas. This is the story of one man finding himself amidst the ashes of a divided
Europe.
