When the Japanese attack Singapore the day after Pearl Harbor, European women and children are immediately sent home. However, the Japanese sink their ship in open waters despite the fact that it is marked as a Red Cross vessel. Surviving women spend the duration of WWII in a POW camp on Sumatra. Forbidden any contact with the outside world, prisoners form a caring community against a background of torture, starvation, and illness. To keep spirits up, they form a vocal orchestra, performing such works as Dvorak's New World Symphony.
