Based on cel­e­brated English au­thor Vera Brit­tain’s au­to­bi­o­graph­i­cal novel of the same name, the movie re­counts the tur­bu­lent times en­coun­tered by var­i­ous young peo­ple dur­ing World War 1. Brit­tain (Ali­cia Vikan­der) is study­ing at Ox­ford Univer­sity and en­gaged to Roland Leighton (Kit Har­ing­ton) a friend of her beloved brother, Ed­ward (Taron Eger­ton). Al­though she had to fight her fa­ther to go to univer­sity, Brit­tain chooses to de­fer her stud­ies in favour of be­ing a volunteer nurse dur­ing the war. The film de­picts the har­row­ing re­al­i­ties of life dur­ing the war and the many sac­ri­fices that had to be made by men and women in the prime of their lives.
