The Screen Guide

Australia is at war with Japan. An untrained unit of militiamen on the Kokoda track are cut off from supply and all communications. Overwhelmed by illness and fatigue, they must make their way through the most unforgiving terrain on earth. After three days they emerge from the jungle exhausted to the point of collapse. But on learning that they will soon be overrun, they pick themselves up and return to the nightmare of battle. Based on a true story.
