Six years in the making, this epic 15 hour film focuses on the stories of citizens from four geographically distributed American towns -- Waterbury, Connecticut; Mobile, Alabama; Sacramento, California; and the tiny farming town of Luverne, Minnesota. These four communities stand in for -- and could represent -- any town in the United States that went through the war's four devastating years. Individuals from each community take the viewer through their own personal and quite often harrowing journey into war, painting vivid portraits of how the war dramatically altered their lives and those of their neighbors, as well as the country that helped to save for generations to come.
