This documentary series tells the story of the greatest military controversy in Australian history: the trial and execution of Harry ‘The Breaker’ Morant and Peter Handcock.

Over a century after he was executed by the British during the Boer War, this film reconsiders the Breaker Morant case. We are guided through cross examinations of historians and legal experts, along with the presentation of evidence that suggests betrayal and subterfuge at the centre of the trial.

Expect dramatic re-enactments shot at the locations touched by the happenings - mainly in South Africa where the actual events occured, while other scenes were shot in Australia.
