The Trench
Available on Pluto TV, Prime Video, Amazon Freevee
Set in the 48 hours leading up to the catastrophic Battle of the Somme in 1916, The Trench is the story of young men at war, as seen through the eyes of 17-year-old Billy MacFarlane. As Billy and his squad wait to be thrown into battle, they experience profound trauma, deep boredom, friendship, animosity, bittersweet recollection and struggle to come to terms with the prospect of their agonisingly short lives to come to an imminent and sudden end.
