Inspired by the poem ‘Dulce Et Decorum Est’ by Wilfred Owen, “Gas!” is a tragic tale of the fate that befalls one Soldier as his troop retreats from the frontline in WWI. It tries to depict the true horror of war. It tells the tale of troops seeking medical care, in a mustard gas attack and what befalls one new recruit who can’t find his mask.
It was originally written, on commission, to be done as a stop-motion animation, but has since been revamped.
