Synopsis

For four gorgeous young women from a remote Aboriginal mission, 1968 was the year that changed their lives forever. Sisters Gail, Julie and Cynthia, together with their cousin Kay, are discovered by Dave, a down-on-his-luck Irish musician with attitude, a taste for Irish whiskey and an ear for soul music. Dave steers the girls away from their country & western origins then flies them to the war-zones of South Vietnam, where they sing soul classics for the American Marines. On tour in the Mekong Delta, the girls sing up a storm, dodge bullets… And fall in love. Inspired by a true story, THE SAPPHIRES is a triumphant celebration of youth, courage, love, family and soul music.
