All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914

For many years, stories of the World War I, Christmas Truce of 1914 were mostly decried as myths, and then largely forgotten to the horrors of the next world war. But pockets of impromptu truces actually did occur between opposing forces on that Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. All Is Calm uses English dialogue and carol singing in the various languages heard up and down the lines that Christmas, before returning its troops to the realities of war.
