    • Synopsis
    • Over the Mountains inspired by true events, tells the story of Australian soldiers during WW2 who escaped fascist prison camps in Italy and were guided to safety over the Northern border and the Swiss/Italian Alps into Switzerland by Italian boys and families sympathetic to their situation.
      A handful of these Australians managed to learn the Italian language and blend into society, joining partisan forces to help stage attacks on the fascist German army that was occupying the area.
      Over the mountains, focuses on one man’s story, and his incredible journey from Australia, to battle fields in Europe, to captivity in prison camps, to a daring escape and eventually the joining of partisan forces as an Italian spy and resistance fighter as they unite over a common enemy to wrestle the fascist soldier’s grips into freedom for the people.
