Further surprises are in store as they discover that Commandant O'Brien allows the prisoners out on day passes. They can enjoy a drink in the pub or a day out to the races as long as they give their word they won't escape. Tensions are already rife in this extraordinary camp but when a stunning girl catches the eye of both men nothing can contain their mutual distrust and hatred - but Mattie has a profound effect on these arch rivals and forces them to confront their perceptions of what an enemy really is.
