Papua New Guinea 1942, The battle for the track has begun.
A fearsome force of Japanese fighters land on the northern coast of Papua New Guniea. Their intentions: to seize Port Moresby and invade Australia. The only Australians available to face the onslaught are a small force of ill-equipped and untrained militia.
After sustained bombing and leathal attacks from the japanese, the men are cut off from their supply lines and all communications. Isolated in the jungle behond enemy lines, suffering from the effects of dysentery and malaria and to the point of collapse, they must make their way back through the most perilous terrain on earth...the KOKODA track.
Allegiiances form, streengths and weaknesses emerge and leadership battles threaten to destroy the group.
Based on a true story, Inspired by the Australian fighting spirit.
