Description One hundred years have passed since the Great War yet some stories remain untold – Black Diggers is one of them. Through interweaving vignettes, an all-star cast of male actors tells of the hundreds of dispossessed Indigenous soldiers who heard the call to arms and stepped up to fight for Australia on the battlefields of Europe.
