Emus are running wild and destroying wheat crops all throughout Western Australia. The Royal Australian Artillery send two Privates - Kelly and Brown - along with five thousand rounds of ammunition and a Lewis Machine Gun to start the cull on the farm of Clementine and Billy Westlake.
As winning the war effort begins to look more and more unlikely The Royal Australian Artillery send out reinforcements and a tank in order to cull the emus.
