Jake’s Gift is a surprisingly funny, multi-award winning drama, about a Canadian WW2 veteran’s
reluctant return to Normandy, France, for the 60th Anniversary of D-Day. While roaming the
shores of Juno Beach, Jake encounters Isabelle, a precocious ten-year-old from the local village
whose inquisitive nature and charm challenge the old soldier to confront some long ignored
ghosts. At its heart, Jake’s Gift is about the legacy of remembrance and personalizes the story
behind one soldier’s grave.
