The destructive wake of World War II left probing questions about trauma and humanity for soldiers and civilians who survived the global conflict. Rediscovered footage of Hollywood director William Wyler's documentary 'The Memphis Belle: A Story of a Flying Fortress' brings the heroic tales back to the forefront as a reflective meditation about what it was like to be on the front lines as pilots, gunners, and navigators. A first-hand account from members of the U.S. Eighth Air Force recreates and honors the personal perspective of those who served in one of the most tragic events of the 20th Century.
