The movie depicts the events of the first Christmas of the War in December 1914, before which time Felix goes missing in action in battle during an attack. But the first battle of the War in which Canadian land forces were engaged was Neuve Chapelle in March 1915, and the first battle in which Canadian land forces participated in an attack was Second Ypres in April 1915.

About 20 characters from RTA vanished without even the slightest attempt to explain their whereabouts (including half the siblings in one family),and plot twists totally contrary to what RTA had explained. While it had a few good moments (and good perfomances by Jackie Burroughs as Hetty King and a shining cameo by Zachary Bennett as Felix King) to help it towards the end, they were not enough to offset the dreary tone throughout (with a disappointingly lackluster performance by Gema Zamprogna as Felicity Pike- who had done far better on the series) and overall, it wasn't worth the anticipation! Strictly for RTA fans willing to check their memory cells and logical reasoning at the door!
