'1960s outback Australia. Four boys in a convent orphanage watch younger kids leave with newly adopted parents, fearing their time may never come. The Reverend Mother sends them to the seaside where they meet a young autocratic couple that would make perfect parents. As men, they remember sabotaging each other’s efforts to be the chosen one, only to discover that the real meaning of what it is to be a family, is to be one of the December Boys.'
