ONE MAN'S HEROIC JOURNEY TO FIND PEACE.
Hank Dunfield is on the verge of his 100th birthday. Sarah, a student nurse at Ponderosa Pine Lodge is determined to help him celebrate this milestone, even though Hank doesn’t want anything to do with it. As their relationship unfolds Hank reveals his past as a tail gunner during the Second World War. When Sarah gets to the heart of Hank’s pain and sorrow he opens up to her and is finally able to find the peace he has desperately been seeking. Inspired by the true story of a Calgary WWII Veteran.
