“My grandmother had always said we were French — I would love it to be true,” says actor and presenter Holden as she sets out to trace her ancestry. But while she discovers a Napoleonic soldier who falls in love in a small village across the pond, she also learns of her grandfather’s heartbreaking experiences during the Second World War.
