Aboriginal stockman Sam Kelly works the land of a kind preacher, Fred Smith, living and laboring in a respectful, if diffident, harmony. But when a bitter and often-drunk war veteran named Harry March returns to town, trouble escalates and Sam is forced to kill in self-defense. Shocked, afraid, and with a deep distrust in the impartiality of settler authority, Sam and his wife Lizzie go on the run. Urgently pursued by a posse led by Sergeant Fletcher and Aboriginal tracker Archie, expert bushman Sam must ultimately decide which of several looming unknowns to face.
