My Brother Tom

Synopsis

On the tail end of the Depression and during the last peaceful days before World War II, a small country town is divided by much more that the river that runs through it. A blossoming love affair between the lovely Peggy MacGibbon and the energetic Tom Quayle becomes the focal point for a powerful conflict between two religions. The laughter, joy and passion of teenage love, set in the colourful life of a country town, brings together a mini-series of rare quality.
