The Battlers | Classic Australian Stories DVD




The Classic Australian Drama

It was the winter of 1934, the height of the Depression and thousands of men and women of Australia were on the roads. They had no job, they were homeless, their children were hungry - there was no choice but to take to the track in search of work. Trudging the back roads in old carts or broken down motor vehicles the 'battlers' roamed from town to town. It was a life of dole-book rations, hardship and deprivation, but also of laughter, kindness and camaraderie.Against this backdrop, Snow Grimshaw (Gary Sweet, The Tracker) and Dancy Smith (Jacqueline McKenzie,The Water Diviner) meet, two road travellers thrown together by circumstance... and eventually held together by love.The Battlers is a beautifully moving mini-series. It is the classic story of the triumph of the human spirit over adversity of reluctant love forged against the odds.
