Is there such a thing as justice in war? This film follows the court marshal of two Australian and one British soldier in the Second Boer War, where they were pitted against Boers in the Bushveldt who were using guerilla tactics. Given vague orders, they execute several Boer prisoners in retaliation for a deceptive attack. Embarrassed by the unseemly fighting, the British command court marshals them. The movie tells the story of this colonial fiasco without making anyone out to be innocent, which gives it power and credibility.
