'Harry Lambert, a shy and gentle man, shamed by his rural Australian town into joining the armed forces as a baker in the service corps. When the bakers are thrown into the front line, Harry deserts. In countryside swarming with gendarmes, Harry barely avoids capture when Colombe Jacotot takes pity on him. Colombe is a stoic farm-wife, bowed by hard work and tragedy. Within her bare cottage, Harry and Colombe discover a love that is as powerful as it is unexpected.'
