Inspired by a true story, ‘The Sapphires’ follows four aboriginal Australian girls as they are transformed into a soulful singing group by a kind hearted talent scout, and later travel to Vietnam to entertain battle weary U.S. troops. Recognising something special in the way the girls sing, kindly talent scout Dave (Chris O’Dowd) offers to shape them into a Motown-inspired soul group and get them out on the road.

But when their first gig turns out to be on the front lines of Vietnam – where death has become part of the daily routine – the ambitious young singers realize they’ve got their work cut out for them.
