Synopsis: In 1945, Sheila and Bridie were freed from a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp deep in the jungles of Sumatra where thousands of women and children had lived and died, virtually forgotten by their own governments. Now, after being separated for a half-century, the filming of a television documentary forces them to relive the past, contact the present and question the future. Woven into their fifty years of separation are a shoe-horn and the threads of loyalty and love which form their ‘uncommon bond’.
