Paul Cowan's feature-length film combines fiction and reality to tell the story of how William Avery (Billy) Bishop became one of the leading fighter pilots of World War I. By no accounts a biography of Billy Bishop, the film uses a 'docu-drama' approach to show how one person goes from being a brash kid from Ontario to Canada's most decorated military figure.

Dear Mr. D. F. Pearson
 
Know the truth and the truth shall set you free. Billy Bishop shoots down numerous enemy planes. His valour is not is not in question here. We are all in awe and respectfully in admiration for his contribution. It is only that we have a problem with the math he uses (maybe). We are sorry for this
