Descrizione

WW11 reaches Australia! Sweethearts Tom and Annie, and parents of two small daughters, bid farewell as Tom in army uniform sails from Australia. In Singapore, the battles he fights against the Japanese are fierce, but there is worse to befall Tom when a flag in white is carried against the shoulder of his leader. Surrender! From a fighting soldier Tom is a prisoner of the enemy. From Changi he is transported to Burma where a railway must be built. After years of slavery, disease and starvation his spirit to survive is threatened. But at his weakest moment he clings to the promise he made to Annie: he will return to her and their darling daughters. Despair is thrown aside and his determination for survival is as strong. In Australia, Annie nurtures their daughters in a country that has changed forever. Her fear for the safety of Tom escalates when news is heard of the fall of Singapore, and only days later alarm is felt when Japanese bombs fall on Australian soil and warnings are made Australians must be prepared for enemy invasion with little or no warning. Annie’s tears falling many years later when church bells ring and dancing fills the streets. The war with Japan is over! In a squalid camp in another hemisphere, Tom reaches up to snatch a piece of paper. He reads the words: 'Japan has surrendered'. He is going home, but will he break free from the shadows of war?
