For four young women from a remote Aboriginal mission, 1968 was the year that changed their lives forever. The young women are discovered by Dave, a down-on-his-luck Irish musician with attitude. He flies them to Vietnam, where they sing Soul Classics for the American troops. Inspired by a true story, The Sapphires is a triumphant celebration of youth, courage, love, family and Soul Music.
