Summary
After enduring the horror and chaos of post-war Germany, Lotte Drescher and her family arrive in Australia full of hope for a new life. It's a land of opportunity, where Lotte and husband Erich hope to give their children the future they have always dreamed of. After years of struggling to find their feet as 'New Australians', Erich turns his skill as a wood carver into a successful business and Lotte makes a career out of her lifelong passion, photography. The sacrifices they have made finally seem worth it until Erich's role in the trade union movement threatens to have him branded a communist and endanger their family. As the shadow of the Vietnam War looms, the unexpected arrival of her former fiancé Heinrich forces Lotte to a turning point. Her decision will change her life forever -- and to finally understand the true meaning of home
