    Plot Outline: Author Rudyard Kipling and his wife search for their 17-year-old son after he goes missing during WWI.
    Plot: English gentleman author Rudyard Kipling, famous for the Jungle Book, uses his considerable influence, being on a War Office propaganda think tank, to get his nearly 18 ear-old son John 'Jack', repeatedly refused for service during World war I on account of his bad eyesight, enrolled in the Irish Guards: their patriotic dream but mother and sister's nightmare. After a short officer training course Jack gets command of a platoon and embarks in France. Soon his unit suffers terrible losses and Jack is reported missing. Now mother Caroline 'Carry' Kipling proves unstoppable pushing Rudyard's influence and half of England to help find out the truth. When it finally comes, there is far less glory than gore and guilt.

    Movie Quotes: McHugh:”>the last of Jack's soldiers are about to go over the trench and take the enemy base] I am not fucking going anywhere!
    John Kipling: You are, we all are!
    McHugh: You
