Private Arthur Hamp 873426 is a nobody. He's nothing special as a soldier, he just is. So when Private Hamp decides he's had enough, he can't take any more, why can't the Establishment accept this?

It's 1917, the battle of Passchendaele has been raging for months, one soldier has reached his breaking point. Is shellshock a crime, is it even recognised as an illness?

These thought-provoking questions are asked in John Wilson's powerful and insightful script.
