Huston's film about the effects of war then known as Shell Shock and Battle Fatigue was suppressed by the military until it premiered in New York and at the Cannes Film Festival in 1981. Shot at Mason General Hospital in Brentwood, Long Island at the end of World War II, it follows the story of seventy-five soldiers from the US Army who suffered trauma in the war.
