How far would you go to protect the one you love?

Based on a true story.

1944. During WWII, a remarkable love story unfolds. Meet a courageous combat medic, Staff Sergeant Edmund Kruszynski, whose dedication to saving lives takes him to the front lines of battle. He leads a platoon of brave medics onto the blood-soaked beaches of Normandy, across Europe, and eventually into the heart of Hitler’s Germany. The weight of seeing close friends perish rests upon him. Amid the chaos, he finds love in the most unexpected place: Buchenwald.

At home, Mary works tirelessly supporting the war effort, finding strength in her love for Ed. However, rumors and the constant fear for Ed’s safety test her resolve.

Ed returns home adorned with medals, and Mary hopes for a peaceful future. But an invisible war puts Mary’s life at risk and threatens to destroy their once unbreakable bond. Faced with an ultimatum, Ed bares his soul, while Mary vows to protect their secrets at all costs.

She almost succeeds….

Historical Fiction told through real-life testimonies, first-person accounts, interviews and photographs.
