On Christmas Eve, 1944, a small group of American soldiers are occupying a burned-out village in northern France. The town mayor's widow makes an extraordinary request, asking if they will help revive the town from the crippling malaise of Nazi occupation by restoring a lost Christmas tradition. But before the men can complete their task, they are given orders to join what will become known as the Battle of the Bulge. Will they desert the army to help the people they have come to love? Based on a true story, The Bells of Charlemont beautifully evokes the power of the human spirit in the midst of war.
