Deeply profound and moving, In Flanders Fields is an eloquent counterpoint to the senselessness and unhumanity of war. It tells the story of a young homesick soldier, who, on Christmas Day, risks his life to cross the no-man’s-land and rescue a robin caught on the barbed wire on one of the worst killing fields of World War I.
