"On Christmas Eve, 1914, three groups of soldiers fighting in the trenches of France lay down their rifles and celebrate together in the barren stretch of No Man's Land that separates them. Beginning with an exchange of songs, the French, German, and Scottish soldiers search for a way to overcome--if only briefly--the conflict that divides them."
"This movie is inspired by a true story, which occurred in the trenches of the World War I battlefield on Christmas Eve in 1914. When war breaks out in the lull of summer 1914, it surprises and pulls millions of men in its wake. Christmas arrives, with its snow and multitude of family and army presents. But the surprise won't come from inside the generous parcels which lie in the French, Scottish, and German trenches. That night, a momentous event will turn the destinies of four characters: an Anglican priest, a French lieutenant, an exceptional German tenor and the one he loves, a soprano and singing partner. During this Christmas Eve, the unthinkable happens: soldiers come out of their trenches, leaving their rifles behind to shake hands with the enemy."
