Brisbane. Early 1943.

A town under US occupation…friendly though it’s supposed to be.

Macarthur has set up his HQ in Queen St and the Japs are being held at Kokoda, but it’s not over yet.

In 1969 a home-made bomb explodes in the sleazy heart of Brisbane's Fortitude Valley, killing eleven people and igniting a controversy that could threaten the government itself.
