Fighting Season

Fighting Season

Australia, 2010. Three soldiers arrive home to a near-empty airport with only their families to greet them. The mood of their unexpected return from Afghanistan is sombre, more “guilty secret” than welcome return. Why? Their veteran leader Captain Ted Nordenfelt had been killed two days before on a controversial mission. A mission marred by bitter mistakes and the result of a secret they’ll do anything to keep.Fighting Season is the story of these soldiers, their families and the unfolding mystery around Ted’s death. It’s about an army culture of stoic self-sacrifice that can corrode even the strongest marriage. About the politics of war and the bonds of mateship forged in a war-zone, of experiences so intense that those “back home” in the undisciplined world can’t understand. These men hold fragments of the truth that surrounds Ted’s death. But are they hiding something? Is it simply the horrific nature of Ted’s death or is it something more – even murder? The story involves an Australian platoon in the Afghanistan war, forced to come home following the death of their leader. A murder mystery involving the now deceased Captain Ted Nordenfelt ensues.
