White Gardenia

Opening in a small village on the Chinese-Russian border under Japanese occupation in the final days of World War Two, White Gardenia tells the story of a White Russian mother and daughter whose lives are intersected by history.

From the glamorous nightclubs of Shanghai to the harshness of the Siberian wasteland, from a desolate island in the South China Sea to a new life in postwar Australia, and finally to Cold War Moscow, White Gardenia sweeps across cultures and continents.
