Towards an end to violence.

In the lead-up to the Atlanta olympics a crazed gunman, Martin Bryant, murders a large number of tourists who are visiting the Historic Penal Colony of Port Arthur, Tasmania, on the 28th April 1996.

As Australians still struggle to come to terms with what happened, the Olympic Games begin, an event which serves as a reminder of the better things about us.
