Four smart, gutsy young Australian Aboriginal women become unlikely stars in the most unlikely of places, with the most unlikely of allied, in THE SAPPHIRES. Set in 1968, the film follows Gail, Cynthia, Julie and Kay as they seize the risky, but irresistible chance to launch a professional music career singing for U.S. troops in Vietnam. Under the tutelage of an R&B loving Irish musician, Dave Lovelace, the girls transform themselves into a sizzling soul act and set out to make a name for themselves hundreds of miles from home. Inspired by a true story, THE SAPPHIRES is a triumphant celebration of youthful emotion, family and music.
