What is Close to the Enemy about?

The official synopsis of Close to the Enemy reads:


“Close to the Enemy is set in the transitional period of 1946 – the brutal Second World War is finally over but the destruction of families and cities permeates everyone’s lives.

As the Cold War takes its hold in Europe and the public realization that the Atom Bomb could be used by any Government; our hero Callum (Jim Sturgess) passionately believes that to safeguard the future you mustn’t heed the past regardless of how terrible it has been.

However, as the story unfolds he finds that he is compelled to look backward and eventually realizes that you have to judge (for good or ill) those voluntarily or involuntarily involved in order to actually have a safer world.”
