The legacy of three different wars threatens the harmony of three generations within one Australian family. The hub of the family is Beatty, Dutch matriarch and former POW, who is struggling to care for her wilful teenage granddaughter, Mariana, and her son, Richard, a Vietnam veteran with 'a war in his head'. Only by confronting the darkness of the past will they each find the light of the future, and re-discover their love for each other.
