On the day Australians charge the Nek, a man goes missing at Gallipoli. The woman who loved him and the soldiers who served alongside him begin their search. In 1919, historian CEW Bean returns to Anzac, to solve one of the greatest mystery of the campaign, to discover Gallipoli’s secret.
This imagined-history is about unresolved loss, the need to know, and a story of reconciliation that bridges countries and generations. Fusing literature, fiction and history, it journeys across a real and imagined landscape, empowering voices and lives too long locked in the archives. Steeped in a deep knowledge of the past and courageously contemporary, it asks what Gallipoli means in the twenty-first century.
