Long Story Short


In 1942, as young Australian soldier Bill Hollis was heading off to serve in Papau New Guinea he threw a note out the train window asking for someone to write to a lonely soldier.

Long Story Short takes us on a poetic journey to a nursing home in Australia. Here live Bill and Audrey. Under their skin they both carry fantastic stories, and share with us insights into life, love and loss, and fife after death.
