This film brings the viewer to Normandy, France. Once an idyllic landscape, Normandy had succumbed to German invaders who overran its farms, its manors, its countryside. Viewers meet those who recount their unique relationships with the Allied forces who liberated Normandy on June 6, 1944. The journey from occupation to liberation to acceptance and forgiveness to gratitude and pride is explored through interviews with French survivors and American veterans in this powerful, personal film that tells stories handed down over two generations. The viewer travels to today’s United States with Flo Plana, who seeks out the men of the 101st Airborne Division to collect and curate their stories for the Utah Beach D-Day Museum. Veterans recount their experiences and the relationships they built over the summer of 1944.
