On December 6, 1917, Halifax became a casualty of WWI when the Mont-Blanc, a French-owned freighter loaded with thousands of tons of explosives collided with a Belgian relief ship in Halifax Harbour. The explosion and shockwaves killed 2,000 people, injured 9,000 and flattened two square kilometers of the city. Out of the carnage came stories of small sacrifices and great heroism – stories that are at the heart of Shattered City: The Halifax Explosion. This unforgettable drama intertwines the stories of real and fictional characters with events before, during and after the explosion. Vincent Walsh, Graham Greene and Pete Postlethwaite star in a gripping story of how this tragic incident became a living metaphor for the war and how the people of Halifax rose from the ashes.
