This is extraordinary story of Fr Willie Doyle, the Irish Jesuit who died at Passchendaele while serving as a chaplain in the British Army during the First World War.
Directed by Campbell Miller, vividly depicts how Fr Doyle,
who served in the 16th Irish Division, repeatedly risked his
own life to save others – including enemy German soldiers – during some of the war’s bloodiest battles.
