Tucked away in the nooks and crannies of a rocky, snowy landscape, young soldiers appear to be getting ready for an invisible war. The barracks, wind, card games, chatter and above all, the waiting. Through the lens of his still camera, a young medical officer observes this small, faraway village and his castaway companions, collecting hundreds of pictures as others would fill the pages of a diary. The Sail Unfurled is a private account of a common experience, where sharing, friendship, life given to nature are not enough to keep the thoughts of war away.
