"Marching for Marco" looks at the concept of acceptance. Marco is the son of post-war European immigrants and is caught between the traditional culture of his parents and that of his country, Australia. Marco dreams of representing Australia in sport or playing in a VFL Grand Final. His opportunity to represent Australia does not come through sport however, but through Australia's involvement in the Vietnam war. As a returned veteran of that unfortunate experience, Marco again faces his old dilemma, acceptance.
