Land of Dreams
Sam Delon is a young Frenchman born and raised in Japan. Florence Carter has led a quiet and lonely life in her native Australia. One meeting on a Sydney beach is enough to create a lasting bond between the unlikely pair - and enough to share a secret with the potential to transform Sam's life. When Japan attacks Pearl Harbour, Sam becomes an enemy in his own country and exists under the relentless scrutiny of the military police, sustained only by the knowledge he shares with Florence. They risk everything to stay in touch - but as the bombs drop on Darwin and Tokyo, their commitment to each other is pushed to the limit.
