We open on a platoon, they’re dressed in World War 2 uniform.
They wait breathlessly in a dugout.
As we pan along we reveal one of our soldiers isn’t like the others.
He is an older man. He looks terrified.
We cut to them running through the mud, our man is struggling and his
platoon try to help him. He’s slowing them down.
We see him in action, firing a gun on his belly in the mud, his shaky hands
can’t load the gun, tears roll down his face.
We see him trying to lift his injured friend out of the line of fire.
He is struggling and incredibly upset.
He glances up to see nurses running to help. One of them is an elderly lady
and in a passing moment they capture each other’s eyes.
He slumps down exhausted and crying, we are close on his eyes now. He blinks
