An elder brother enlists for military service, leaving his younger brother at home to look after their plantation. One evening whilst looking out over the ocean, the younger brother hears 'the call' for help from Australian soldiers fighting overseas. He duly enlists and is sent off to the Middle East, where he arrives just in time to come to the aid of his wounded elder brother.
