Synopsis: 

Seven New Zealand women tell the untold stories of their lives during the Second World War

One at a time, with minimum editorial interruption, seven elderly women face the camera and speak about the impact on their lives of World War II. There are newsreel clips and vivid contributions from the story-tellers' photo albums. but what renders these War Stories enthralling is the more fundamental allure of revelation stacked upon revelation. Tales that lead us with such plain assurance to the storyteller's heartfelt truth make spellbound children of us all.
