People said it could only happen in other coutnries. But they were wrong. A nineteen year old who wanted to be a hero, but was found wanting during military training, shattered the myth that Australia was different. Armed with rifles and ammunition, Julian Knight murdered seven and injured many more.

Hoddle Street reconstructs, through the eyes of those who were there, what happened that cold August night in 1987. It tells of incidents never before revealed during 45 minutes of confusion and mayhem that was the Hoddle Street Ambush.
