Between the Lines- Len's War

Between the Lines is the tale of an Australian family at war in 1914. Local football star and man-about-town Len Cutler is on the cusp of making his great escape, from the boredom of the family farm to the fame of the big leagues. The only thing holding him back is the one girl he can't have, Kit- his brother's fiance. On the eve of the Great War, an act of violent jealousy tears him away from home, to the shores of Gallipoli, and sends him back a changed man, in desperate need of redemption.
