Summary
During World War II, a war-ravaged Britain realized it could not billet all its captured German soldiers. Canada stepped forward to house and feed more than 34,000 prisoners of war in 25 remote camps across the country. Today little is left of these war camps, but those who were there - inmates and guard alike - will never forget. Eloquently weaving poignant excerpts from her father's letters with wartime archival images and dramatic re-enactments, Colmers' film shares the powerful stories of these now elderly men, once the "enemy within." Watch as they recall with gratitude, how their lives were changed forever because of the unexpected respect and dignity they received at the hands of their Canadian captors
