Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Alfie Day, RAF airman and former World War II POW, never expected to survive the war. He may not have even wanted to-choosing to be a tail gunner-exposed, alone and watchful for his skipper and his crew through night after night of bombing missions. Now, five years after the end of the war and more alone than ever, Alfie finds himself drawn to unearth those intense, strangely passionate days by working as an extra on a POW film.
