During WWII over 800 Conscientous Objectors were sent to Detention Camps throughout New Zealand. Hautu Detention Camp, situated south of the southern tip of Lake Taupo was one of the toughest. This drama tells the tale of two men in Hautu, Pete Bawn a Methodist Christian Pacifist and Tim Flanagan a West Coast Irish Catholic. It tells of their womenfolk - wives, mothers, sisters and children surviving at home in Christchurch and on the West Coast between 1939 - 46, and explores the lives of these pacifists, our peace people of WWII.
