The film opens with the close of the Civil War and reveals the struggle of a soldier making his way home.
The story is told through music and narration, and critically considered one of the most commanding
Civil War period short films presented in years, while being executed in a new and different way. The
entire story is conveyed without uttering a word, yet it is dramatic and emotionally powerful. It is
definitely a fresh new concept in film.
