Summary
It's 1914 and the British Empire's greatest supporter, Rudyard Kipling, is at the peak of his literary fame. Kipling's son, Jack, is determined to play his part in the immiment war with Germany but finds himself rejected due to his poor eyesight. Kipling uses his influence to land Jack a commission in the Irish Guards. Kipling's wife, Caroline, is bitterly upset, failing to see the glory in losing her only son to the war. How will the great writer, torn between his two greatest passions--devotion to King and Country and love for his family--justify the consequences of his actions to himself and his wife?
