In 1915, renowned author Rudyard Kipling (David Haig, Two Weeks Notice) was enjoying great success. The Jungle Book and the Just-So Stories were beloved by all who read them; he and his American wife Carrie (Kim Cattrall, Sex and the City) enjoyed their life in Sussex with their 2 children, Elsie and Jack (Daniel Radcliffe, Harry Potter).

But the storm is building across the Channel, and soon Great Britain declares war. Father and son alike are swept up in the enthusiasm to fight the Germans. Although his son is cripplingly near-sighted—and only 17—Kipling uses his fame and influence to secure Jack a commission in the Irish guards. After training tirelessly to overcome his disability, Jack sails to France as a popular Lieutenant just six months later.

But only days after his eighteenth birthday, the Kipling family is informed that Jack is "missing believed wounded." Desperately clinging to the hope that their son is still alive, Carrie and Rudyard scour hospitals and obsessively track down survivors. Will they ever learn Jack's fate?

Special DVD features include: a link to the Masterpiece Web site; and closed captions.
