One month after the botched dawn landing, the Australians and New Zealanders continue to consolidate their position in the hills above Anzac Cove. Despite his growing fear that he will be killed at Gallipoli, when the Turks mount a massive attack, Tolly risks his life by charging a machine gun nest to protect his brother Bevan. The newly arrived Light Horsemen are shocked by the aftermath. A truce is negotiated and Anzacs and Turks meet in No Man's Land to bury their dead. They trade gifts, cigarettes and broken conversation, and the Anzacs are confronted with the realisation that the Turkish soldiers are just like them.
