“Story of survival and healing in the land of the enemy.”
An intriguing story of survival and healing in the 1950s world of post war Australia that does not shy away from the brutalising nature of warfare. It covers that period of Australian history when former enemies became friends and fellow citizens. The story reveals the horrors soldiers of both sides faced and the anguish of carrying internal demons, despite a determination to get on with life now that the war is over. In the end, it’s a story of love and friendship overcoming hatred and prejudice.
