There was a Breaker Morant - he was executed at Pietersburg on 27 February 1902. His crime? Wilful murder of civilians. Yet to this day his guilt remains in doubt.
In The Breaker we see Morant as a champion horseman, a likeable larrikin, a popular balladist. We see him in love and in war. Then we see him face the firing squad that will end his life.
Was this man of enterprise and imagination also a cold-blooded killer? Or was he a scapegoat?
