    Sam Neill examines the enduring myths of the Anzac legend, sharing his family's war stories and uncovering forgotten truths that haunt us still today. From the Gallipoli Peninsula back to the Otago Peninsula in New Zealand where Sam grew up, across the Tasman to Australia where he has lived for 35 years, and over to the killing fields of Belgium, France, Crete and Italy, Sam takes a compelling look at the reasons why New Zealand and Australia are still bound by the blood shed during a century of warfare. On the centenary of the disastrous Gallipoli landing, the film looks for answers as to why that particular event has become symbolic and is remembered more than any other in the two nations' shared history. Personal photographs and letters are featured, as well as selected archival footage and interviews with historians.
