Director Wayne Blair is bringing the story of The Sapphires, based on the 2004 stage play of the same name, to the States. The film follows four Aboriginal Australian women who are discovered by a talent scout to form one of the first music groups of its kind. It details their journey as the quartet travels to Vietnam in 1968 to sing for troops during the war. With inspiration from the Civil Rights Movement , audiences will get a glimpse into a story of racial challenges, music biz struggles and triumphs over turmoils of the times.
