Dorothy's husband is off fighting in WWII while she struggles with the family farm and three young kids in rural Australia. But soon she gets the help of two Italian POWs, Alfredo and Joseph, who settle right in. Then, Dorothy takes in German Jewish refugees Frau Gutman and her daughter Rachel. While Dorothy and Alfredo have an unacknowledged love for each other, Joseph and Rachel engage in a secret romance. Secret until Rachel's disapproving mother finds out. A last-minute bombshell accusation needlessly skewers everything that's gone before. Title refers to a tennis score, one of the local pasttimes.
