In this animated documentary, World War II veteran Joseph Robertson tells son-in-law John Fish, Jr. about fighting for the Allies at the Battle of the Bulge, Hitler's last major offensive. Amidst fierce combat and harsh winter weather, both the Germans and the Allies suffered heavy casualties. But Mr. Robertson has never been able to forget one young soldier he killed there. In July, 2005, he recorded this memory through StoryCorps, the national oral history project.
Director/animator Tim Rauch publicly exhibited his work for the first time at age two, when he took a crayon to the family fireplace. While the red on his backside eventually disappeared, the crayon scrawl, looking something like a platypus, was there for good and so was Tim's urge to make a mark on any surface available. Over the years, Tim has found more appropriate places to draw but still looks for a strong reaction from his work. After starting in television, Tim, along with his brother Mike, decided to strike out on his own. The pair have formed Rauch Brothers Animation, a new studio focusing on hand drawn animation and unexpected stories.
