"A forbidden love. An impossible choice. A secret pact."
Romantic drama BRIDE FLIGHT follows three women from different backgrounds, whose lives are changed forever when they emigrate to New Zealand as war brides.
Shy but sensual farm girl Ada, dogmatic Marjorie, and Jewish fashion designer Esther are all eager to escape the gloom of post-war Netherlands. Meeting each other on the 1953 KLM flight that is transporting the brides to their waiting husbands, who have already settled in Christchurch, the three become friends.
They go their different ways on arrival in their new country and begin their new lives, but their paths continue to cross in the years to come. Chance meetings result in love affairs, betrayal and impenetrable bonds, leading up to a final reunion fifty years later.
