The Screen Guide

TATTERSON is the true story of the last days of an Australian soldier in World War II. Captain Vince Tatterson is fighting the Japanese in the jungles of the New Guinea highlands. In order to protect his family from the grim reality of his situation, Tatt sends his fertile imagination to work. He writes a letter home to his young nieces and nephews in which brutal images of warfare are transformed into exotic wonders of nature.
