After the death toll at Gallipoli in 1915 the Australian forces are sent to the major battlefield of the First World War: The Western Front.
JONATHAN BROWN and his close friends, whose lives are full of family and commitments, are faced with a call of duty. A recruitment march has found it's way to their small town. Jonathan's decision is full of heartbreak and regrets. He will carry those with him through the war.
The new soldiers soon find themselves under the wing of the experienced SERGEANT CHAPPELL - a man who will become a father figure - as they experience their baptism of fire in the mud soaked trenches.
A gritty and powerful window to the past, Jonathan's story brings a personal and human element to the concept of war. How will this gentle and kind man survive the horrors of the Western Front? How will he return?
Travel with these men to the front lines. Be with them, change with them. Charge the enemy with them. Cry and laugh with them. Be exhausted with them.
