A love story of a hard, embittered man learning to love is set against some of the most breathtaking and exciting landscapes in Australia. An adaptation of the Australian classic by D'Arcy Niland, it is an exploration of a man who cannot give himself emotionally to the ones he loves. It is the story of Macauley and how he breaks through the walls he has built around him and learns to express his love for his daughter.
