Film Synopsis:

Sisters of War was inspired by real events and based on Rod Miller’s manuscript The Lost Women of Rabaul.

In January 1942, the Japanese war machine thundered across South East Asia. In its path lay a tiny Papuan mission station, Vunapope, where a handful of Australian nurses took refuge with 84 wounded Australian soldiers.

Abandoned by their commanding officers, they found themselves in the eye of the storm when the Japanese military made them prisoners of war. Although they were two very different women, army nurse Lorna Whyte (Sarah Snook – All Saints) and Catholic Sister Berenice Twohill (Claire van der Boom – The Pacific) forged a friendship that would survive starvation, beatings, torture and separation. Sisters of War is the dramatized true story of their captivity, their will to prevail and their extraordinary courage – a story untold until now.
