Last Drinks at Frida's

Synopsis

1944, Sydney. A lonely, married jazz singer and a troubled Aboriginal soldier find solace in each other and their shared history in an underground speakeasy.

Here, the segregation rules of the outside world don’t apply. But as they fall in love, they realise they can't hide from the dangers outside.
