Gossip from the Forest
A tale of personal prejudice and political obstinacy from the author of Schindler's List. In 1918 at Compiègne, France, a group of intractable men negotiate to forge the armistice ending World War I. The Allies press for total submission; the Germans angle for compromise. So they talk on and on, while the guns roar and men die.
