Synopses & Reviews
Long Ago and Far Away is set in the American Zone of Occupation in war-torn Germany just after the end of the Second World War. The St. Georgen Depot in rural Bavaria is part of the Allied effort to destroy captured poison gases and help bring about peace in an uncertain and trying time. Newly arrived Second Lt. Paul Mason is assigned there, and what takes place is seen through his eyes and day-to-day actions. Now in his seventies, conversations with his daughter and grandchildren recall his experiences as well as reveal the person he has since become after so many years.
