At the start of WWII the British Government decided to arrest all Germans in the UK no matter how long they had been here. Among those arrested were many Jewish refugees and many who were fully assimilated. This film records the story of a group who were sent to a POW camp in Australia aboard the Dunera. Written by

This a true story about 2000 Jewish male refugees from Hitler's Germany, who were rounded up by the British because of fear of them being German spies and shipped off to a POW camp in Australia,where they teach the Aussies in charge of them a thing or two about Jewish culture.Bob Hoskins gives another great performance as a Jewish fishmonger born in England,who's just as British as Winston Churchill,but who gets rounded up with the rest.Alternating between drama and comedy,the film strikes a nice balance between the two.
