For four young Aboriginal sisters from a remote town, 1968 was the year that would change their lives forever. Around the world there was revolutions and drugs. And there was Vietnam. The sisters, Cynthia, Gail, Julie and Kay are discovered by Dave, a talent scout with a kind heart, very little rhythm but a great love of soul music. Billed as Australia's answer to 'The Supremes', Dave secures their first gig, and then takes them to Vietnam to sing for the troops. Based on a true story, The Sapphires is a triumphant celebration of love, family and music.

Australian musical comedy drama set in the late 1960s. Based on a true story, the film follows a group of four young Aboriginal women - Kay (Shari Sebbens), Gail (Deborah Mailman), Julie (Jessica Mauboy) and Cynthia (Miranda Tapsell) - who follow their dreams to form an all-girl soul music group. Overcoming racial prejudice and the social constraints of the time, the talented foursome set off with their good-natured, slightly bumbling Irish manager Dave Lovelace (Chris O'Dowd) to entertain the American troops in Vietnam; unaware of the dangers of entering a war zone and confident that the publicity will help them on their way to worldwide fame.
