In 1910, the Australian Government passed a law requiring all boys between 14 and 17 to register for compulsory military training. Fourteen-year-old, Will Barnes, is a conscientious objector, sentenced to three months training at Fort Queenscliff. There he meets opposition, but also wins admirers by sticking to his beliefs.
