Tommy saw his whole regiment wiped out on the first day of the Battle of the Somme in 1916. In 1941, Ellen waved goodbye to her fiance as he left for Crete, two weeks before the German invasion of the island. Tommy's past and Ellen's present collide one night in a cellar as they shelter from an air raid. As they begin to share their stories, two ends of a single thread begin to unravel, shaping a fateful connection and a shared, incredible destiny. Two strangers, two World Wars, one connection in hope.
