There’s a new Australian movie released called Tomorrow When The War Began. It is based on the first in a series of seven books by popular Australian author John Marsden. Tomorrow When The War Began movie is based on a story of seven teens who go on a camping trip for a week and return to find the country has been invaded by a foreign enemy force.
After finding their homes abandoned and their families held captive in the town’s showground, they decide to work together against the enemy in true guerrilla style. They really have to step up and commit acts foreign to a normal teenager but actions that are necessary in order to save themselves and to try to stop the enemy force. It’s often a me or them scenario at times.
It’s a frightening situation they find themselves in – to come home to abandoned homes and their animals dying from starvation and dehydration; trying to find out what has happened to their families; being chased by enemy soldiers; one of their homes being blown up in front of their eyes; hiding out and trying to get rations to help them survive the ordeal.
