It’s Christmas, 1967. Three Australian families are about to head for the coast to get away, to move on, to change. The end-of-year school play is a success. The cars are packed and summer holidays are finally here… Set against the backdrop of war and a social revolution, they find themselves caught up in a storm of family secrets and conflict. One of Australia’s defining works of art, Away is a wonderful story of family, community and forgiveness.
