Synopsis
In her own words, Brigitte a 15 year old German girl describes the final stages of the Second World War in Europe. Her breathtaking descriptions of the countryside, the cannon fire, and life under the Russian occupation delight us as we see this scene through the optimistic eyes of a sensible young girl.

At 25 years old Brigitte has eloped to Australia, pregnant, babe in arms, with her new husband Hans (John), 20 years her senior and now on his third marriage.

Greta Migrant camp in New South Wales is their new home, and after a tough start, the couple make good to buy their home in Georges Hall, Sydney.

The family twist starts in Sydney after the presence of a handsome young soldier, as Johnís struggles with the drink push him further away from his beloved. A rapid family relocation to Townsville, North Queensland has their very young children guessing. What was the rush?

An idyllic childhood for their five boys in the tropical north of Australia goes horribly wrong after seven sometimes rocky years, when John in a drunken rampage causes havoc in the family. Left with no option, Brigitte flees, to Brisbane in South East Queensland with her boys. After a difficult start living in caravan parks, Brigitte finds herself finally in a new house in 10 Wilson Street West End, which is to be her home thru the 1970ís and 1980ís.

John by now is in Hobart Tasmania, indulging his passion for his music and band-leading. As things finally settle down for Brigitte and her family she gets the news that, after 16 long years apart, John is near deaths door in his health.

But would she take John back?
