During World War One, five soldiers from different nations end up together amongst ruins in no man’s land and decide to stick together.
One of the main characters was played by Lewis Douglas, a black American actor, and this made the film especially hateful to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels who ordered every copy of the film to be destroyed.
But one survived so we can screen it! The film will be introduced by film historian Humberto Perez-Blanco
