Changi

2001Runtime:0 minutes
This dramatic TV miniseries is very loosely based on the events that occurred in and around the titular POW camp during World War II -- with its attention squarely centered on the lives of the Australian contingent housed within. Sixty years after the war, six Australian veterans reunite and bring up haunting memories -- tinged with that unique Aussie brand of humor -- of horror and torture at the hands of the Japanese.
