Boundary Street 2011 single work drama

'1942. The world is at war. Singapore has fallen to the Japanese army. Darwin has been bombed. The arrival in Australia of United States troops - black and white - provides a ray of hope. But it's an uneasy alliance. Boundary Street follows the story of three African-American soldiers in Brisbane. Off duty, they head to the Dr Carver Club, a jazz club set up especially for African-American servicemen.

'250 kilometres apart, two 16 year-old girls walk into two police stations to make a confession. A confession of a crime so unimaginable that the full extent of what they are saying only slowly dawns on the police. And in their hometown, nothing will ever be the same again. What drives two teenage girls to commit a crime that has shaken their home town to the core and shocked the entire country?

Exploring the rural subculture of drugs, alcohol and the alienation of today's youth, Reg Cribb weaves a disquieting tale of crime and inhumanity.' Source: (sighted 14/10/2011).
