D-DAY: THE PRICE OF FREEDOM pays tribute to the courageous men who began the liberation of France more than 60 years ago. Throughout this moving documentary, former paratroopers, gunners, landing craft operators and others from the U.S. Army and U.S. Navy share their harrowing tales of survival. Five veterans — some of whom were returning to France for the first time since 1944 — make an emotional journey to the American Cemetery overlooking Omaha Beach, the final resting place of 9,000 of their fallen comrades. There, each speaks candidly about the unimaginable horror, despair and fear of the day. D-DAY: THE PRICE OF FREEDOM also explores why these aging men remain heroes to the French people. During their visit, young and old alike honor their liberators with toasts, ceremonies and other tokens of gratitude.
