Two towns. A bridge connecting them and a border dividing them. When the war of 1812 breaks out, the neighbouring border towns of St. Stephen, New Brunswick and Calais, Maine are reluctant to go to war against each other. The people in each community have built life-long friendships – freely crossing the bridge that connects them for daily visits. Literally overnight, the war quickly redefines their world as they know it and their lives are forever changed. Through humour and Foster’s trademark witty dialogue, 1812 by Norm Foster examines the meaning of friendship, love and loyalty.
