March 1918. C Company arrives to take its turn in the front-line trenches of northern France. With a German offensive imminent, the officers and their cook use food, drink, and the memories of their lives before the war, to distract themselves. A young officer arrives fresh out of training abuzz with the excitement of his first posting - not least because he is to serve under his former school house monitor and the object of his sister’s affections. Each man is trapped, the tension rising and the attack drawing ever closer.
