This series charts the journey of Z Special Unit, Australias first covert special force, a multicultural unit that fought behind Japanese lines during WW2. Over three episodes the series interweaves the story of Z Specials historic missions with a contemporary narrative - recreating their jungle training regime in the present day and putting the Z mens own descendants through it.
