When a new soldier, Irishman Brendan Barra, is brought to Barry Moon’s trench on the Gallipoli front to replace his mate who has died, Moon does not know what he is in for.
It is the love between comrades in arms, coupled with a fierce resistance to stupid and cruel authority, which Barra has inherited from his Irish warrior ancestors.
Moon, a typically unfocussed, ordinary Australian country boy, has never thought about his place in the world or the forces that manipulate him. Now, Barra gives him no choice, and Moon grows up quickly, facing issues he has never even dreamed about.
But in coming of age, Moon has been changed, and he, too, must decide where he stands.
