A young couple cycle over the soft rolling hills. The War has just started.
Reaching the nearest town, they spot a recruitment poster calling for cyclists to join the army. The young man decides to enlist.
They become engaged but all too soon he receives his orders. The colourful joyfulness of home fades as the brutal reality of War approaches.
We witness his encounters with other soldiers, and other cyclists, in the ravaged landscape.
Officially he remains “Missing in Action”, and news of his disappearance reaches home.
The years of waiting turn to decades. Has she given up hope? Her only link with him remains his beloved bicycle that shares a place next to hers in the shed.
