This film tells the story of Canada’s 21st battalion as they prepare for the Battle of Flers-Courcelette on 15th September, 1916. This World War I drama has been inspired by actual events and takes place in real time. 21 Brothers follows Sgt. Reid as he gets his platoon ready in the final 90 minutes before all “hit the bags”. Not only must he prep the platoon but he is forced to deal with all the difficulties of daily life in trench on the Western Front. 21 Brothers is the longest film shot in a single take. Shot in April 2011 on location in Kingston, Ontario.
