A historical saga marking the 100 year anniversary of the Gallipoli landing, When We Go to War tells the story of six young men and women who, in 1914, are full of plans and dreams for the future. Cutting between life at home, Gallipoli and Egypt, this drama begins in a time of optimism and hope, on the eve of war. As the series — and the war — progress, the changing lives of those back home are contrasted with the experiences of New Zealand soldiers in the trenches and of nurses caring for the wounded in Egypt. At home or abroad, nobody will come through the war unchanged.
