Untouched for fifty years, a family finds a bundle of letters setting them on a journey into their past, and the rediscovery of a tragic love story amid the turmoil of World War II. Bermudian, Major Toby Smith lost his life at the Battle of Overloon during the final Allied push for victory. This film weaves a haunting portrait etched in Toby’s own words. Based on a book of the same name by Jonathan Smith "In the Hour of Victory" tells the story of WWII through the words of a soldier who lived it and died "in the hour of his company's victory." With a blend of reenactment and archive footage it stands out from other films as the story is structured around and narrated with words from love letters to his wife that tell not only of his experiences as a soldier but also of his family's hardship.
