Synopsis:
Based on real people and events, the powerful, moving and often brutal historical drama "Field Punishment No.1" tells one of the most remarkable and controversial stories of World War I: the stance taken by New Zealand's first conscientious objectors, who endured incarceration, torture and even death for refusing to be conscripted against their will. Despite the unrelenting efforts of the Allied military machine, these men refused to renounce their pacifism despite being condemned as cowards. Arrested and secretly shipped off to Europe, they endured years of hardship in prisons, punishment camps and even asylums for the insane.
Ultimately they were sent to the front line of battle, from which many of them never returned. How these men were stigmatised and tortured In an attempt to break their spirit makes for an uncompromising and dramatic war story - but the integrity, courage and compassion with which they dealt with the cruelty is even more extraordinary as 'digger' and pacifist alike confronted the futility of the'Great War'.
