In WWII, nearly one million United States military personnel were stationed in Australia for strategic forward staging. Many American servicemen married Australian women, promising a new life in post-war America. Promises fell short when stringent immigration quotas prevented these women from accompanying their husbands to the U.S. The brides were left wondering when they would see their husbands, or if their children would have fathers. In 1945, congress responded with the War Brides Act, allowing 15,000 Australian women non-quota status to reunite with their husbands. In this coming of age story, one such bride must find great courage as the truth of her circumstances comes to light.
