Synopsis: 
Northern France, 1918. Canadian tunneller ABRAHM BERTON (Rossif Sutherland) specializes in tunneling under enemy lines and exploding their trenches from below. It’s brutal, claustrophobic work – even more deadly than life above ground in the trenches. As World War One approaches its bloody conclusion, Berton allows himself the luxury of dreaming about a life after war with his French fiancé, VERONIQUE (Karine Vanasse). Berton’s superiors CAPTAIN JENNINGS (Ted Atherton) and DR. PRIEST (Charlie Carrick) have other plans. They need his unique expertise to lead a team of Allies below ‘Trench 11’ inside a secret underground German base they suspect to be the home of REINER’s (Robert Stadlober) weapon laboratory. World War One was a violent era for the development of lethal force. ‘Mustard gas’ and the machine gun were both invented during these unforgiving years. Reiner has lost control of a highly contagious biological weapon – a parasite which was intended to destroy Allied livestock, but has an even more profane effect on humans. Despite profound apathy towards his commanders and all forms of authority, Berton has to confront this sophisticated and profane evil to survive.
