Gallipoli gave him anger ... she gave him passion!

Tom Cooper (Andrew McFarlane) is a young married man recently returned from Gallipoli to small-town country life. Tom is dissatisfied with life and disinterested in his pregnant wife (Ingrid Mason). He begins an affair with an artist, Alice (Sara Kestelman), who has rented a cottage by the beach for her painting. However, the arrival of Alice's friends complicates their newfound relationship.

Directed by Ken Hannam (Sunday Too Far Away) and written by screenwriter Cliff Green (Picnic at Hanging Rock), Break of Day explores the devastating effect of the First World War on young soldiers, based on their diaries, and illustrates the flipside of the Anzac legend – Australian men who came back angry and alienated from their mates.

Break of Day features AFI Award–winning cinematography from Oscar-winner Russell Boyd, aptly evocative of Australian landscape painting.
