Movie Details

This low-budget Australian period piece examines the effects of WWII on the women and children left behind when the country sent troops into battle. Dorothy (Lisa Hensley) oversees the family farm while her husband fights; she's aided by two Italian prisoners of war, Alfredo (Steve Bastoni) and Joseph (Domenic Galati), as well as a Jewish mother and daughter seeking asylum from Nazi Germany. Her children take to the Italians immediately, viewing them as father figures while their real dad's away. Meanwhile, the young German woman becomes smitten with Joseph, with dire consequences. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi
