Synopsis

It is 1953, and the last great transcontinental air race from London to Christchurch is about to begin, but even before the KLM plane has left the runway, it has already become famous as the bride flightA" for its cargo of brides-to-be flying out to join their fiances on the other side of the world. Among them are Ada, Marjorie and Esther, who all have their own reasons for wanting to leave the past behind and make a fresh start. And then there's Frank, a charismatic bachelor with big dreams for the future, whose path will continue to cross with each of the women as they build very different lives for themselves in New Zealand. It is only when they meet again, years later at Frank's funeral, that the three women realise just how tightly their lives have been bound together by what happened on that fateful voyage.
