An uplifting and spiritual story of the 17 local men from this area of the coast who fought in World War I as they meet at the gates of St. Peter. They sing classic hymns, tell jokes and remember their past in this heart-felt local play that puts a face to men whose names are etched in stone on the Cow Head War Memorial. Where did they come from? Where did they fight? Did they come home? Who are their families today? A personal and revealing portrait of 17 local heroes.
