This film is low budget and stage bound but it transcends its limitations and delivers an interesting little piece of offbeat drama. It's not really a fantasy but it has overtones of "Death Takes a Holiday" and "On Borrowed Time". The story centers around a small outpost of American pilots on an island north of Australia whose mission is to stop Japanese air attacks. One day a USO girl is mistakenly brought to the island. She proceeds to put on a one-girl USO show while waiting for a plane to take her where she is supposed to be. During the few days she there she gets to know the guys and they discover that they all have something in common, a strange, secret something that begins to look like destiny. The film ends oddly without explaining itself and the audience is left wondering what it was supposed to mean. Even with this weirdness you feel that it was memorable and worth seeing.
