Synopsis: Don McCarthy was 20 years old on D-Day, when his infantry division landed on Omaha Beach in 1944. Don and the other veterans who survived D-Day will someday soon have passed into memory and legend. This realization inspired 20-year-old filmmaker Charlotte Juergens to join Don and seven other D-Day veterans on a journey to France – a commemorative pilgrimage to Omaha Beach for the 70th anniversary of the invasion in 2014.

In capturing their lives, Charlotte’s film offers a new, intergenerational perspective on D-Day, presenting the memories of 90-year-old combat veterans through the eyes of a 20-year-old woman.
