Christmas. 1914. Broken Hill. Australia is at war. The Anzacs are storming Gallipoli.

Amidst the turmoil of war, two people are secretly in love. Mullah Abdullah is a Turkish butcher of the Moslem faith, Molly Wilks is an usherette at the local picture house. As events tragically unfold, their relationship is torn apart by the prejudice and hatred that surrounds them.
