The Sapphires

1968. Four young women from a remote Aboriginal mission, sisters Gail, Julie and Cynthia, together with their cousin Kay, are discovered by Dave, a down-on-his-luck Irish musician with attitude, a taste for Irish whiskey and an ear for soul music. Dave steers the girls away from their country & western origins then flies them to the war-zones of South Vietnam, where they sing soul classics for the American Marines. On tour in the Mekong Delta, the girls sing up a storm, dodge bullets...and fall in love. Inspired by a true story, "The Sapphires" is a triumphant celebration of youth, courage, love, family and soul music.
