    1969. Vietnam. Bombs are dropping and the world is exploding in protest. Meanwhile back at the Tiki Club in St Kilda, four Koori sisters from country Victoria catch the eye of a big city talent scout with their Supremes cover band. But for the McCrae girls, the realisation of a lifelong dream to perform overseas isn’t quite what they had in mind. They’re off to sing for the troops on the front line.
