‘My son’s remains, his broken bones, are here in the ground.’ He then taps his forehead. ‘But Kurt is in here. What is in the ground is not as important as what is in our minds and in our hearts, it is here where he lives.’ As they leave through the gates Erich turns to take one last look, there is a thought in his mind that he’ll not visit again. He puts his hand on John’s shoulder. ‘Two sons, two graves, this is what we share.’

It's 1932 and Hitler and the Nazi Party are threatening to take control of Germany. There is a growing fear of another war.

Two families from vastly different backgrounds make their way to visit their sons' war graves in the Flanders region of Belgium. John and Annie Williams are on their annual trip from England in memory of their son, Herbert, who had been killed while fighting at the battle of Passchendaele in 1917. Erich and Martina Lehmann have travelled from Germany to pay their respects to the memory of their son, Kurt who died in the same campaign. During their visit, the couples meet and in the wake of such devastation, confrontational events take place.

Two Sons moves from the war on the western front to the domestic lives of both families over a period of two decades. Having lost their sons in one conflict, both families fear that they may have to make further sacrifices in light of the growing threat.
