As the War in Europe rages, a young composer prepares for his debut - unaware that the United States has already prepared a draft for nearly a million soldiers. While he is thrust into a war he never asked to fight, the final blow comes after the last shot is fired, and he returns to New York.
A short film of epic proportions - which took nearly a year to complete along with hundreds of man hours to perfect the film.
