What do you do when your country is at war, your town is at war, your friends are at war and there’s a war inside your head? You run.
One morning Jade wakes bruised and bleeding on the beach. She thinks she’s alone, that no one will know, but someone was watching from the cave above the cliffs.
Set in a regional coastal town, War Crimes tells a powerful story of five disenfranchised young women who are fighting for respect, railing against authority and struggling to form an identity in a small town with limited opportunities. The relocation of an Iraqi refugee family to the town provokes a climate of hostility and tension that threatens to violently explode.
War Crimes continues Real TV’s trademark technique of using real events as pretexts for the creation of relevant and provocative contemporary Australian drama.
