The film shows how they try to reintegrate into the society they left, the expectations of the family they left behind tells their frustrations, desperation and a determination to claim what is rightfully theirs. The veterans rally round Sgt. Adjetey with the expectation of restoring hope. A peaceful march on 28th February 1948 was to change their lives. However, events turn violent as six shots from the British Police Superintendent killed the three veterans, leaving sixty others wounded. Gold Coast was never the same again.
