Storyline

Reporter Judith Wilkes leaves her husband and two sons in Sydney and goes to Malaysia to cover the story of the Vietnamese boat people. She becomes romantically involved with Kanan, and strikes up a friendship with Lady Minou Hobday, who keeps a regular vigil at "Turtle Beach" where the refugees try to land secretly in the hope that one day her own children will arrive. Accompanying Minou one night, Judith witnesses a brutal massacre by the Malaysians which spurs her on to expose the horrors of the internment camps at Bidong.

The best movie ever made
6 January 2000 | by (Adelaide) – See all my reviews

This movie is a masterpiece, foremost because of actor Daniel DeLeur's portrayal as Peter. He was cheated out of an Oscar and an AFI nomination. The story revolves around Greta Scaachi who helps the plight of some Vietnamese people. Art Malik(who played the muslim terrorist leader in True Lies) is also brilliant but is out performed by Deleur. Deleur's big eyebrow and excellent acting make this a terrific film worth seeing because it also tells the story of hope and survival. I collected many a can to hire this film and have not regretted it since. My score - 10/10
