AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In the horrors of WW1, mechanized war marks the end of an era. Sandy is the only Australian horse to come home from the First World War, spending his final days in the Maribyrnong remount depot. His unknown story is told through the Major General mortally wounded at Gallipoli, a veterinarian on the Western Front, and the groom who brings Sandy home. Each strangely affected by their symbiotic relationship with the horse. The brutality of war and the heroic lives of men and horses that served are captured through physical performance and unique poetic theatricality with a haunting, original sound design.'
