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.

Using a 2 dimensional animation technique with references from archival materials and images of the society at the time of the event, the film recreates an exciting epic of our history and legacy. A fine addition to the collection of our history narrative
