This is a true story about life on the land in those final years before the mobility of mechanization changed the face of life on the great rural holdings of inland Australia. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, always interesting.

A great change sweeps across the cattle industry. Old family owners are quickly being replaced by city businessmen, doctors, lawyers, investors, all with too much money and no bush sense. Managers were replaced by accountants and traditions like a man's word and handshake as a contract, replaced by a scrap of paper with a bunch of meaningless words. Rick takes up the challenge in an ancient frontier, the rugged heart of the Kimberley and at a price, makes a packet for his ungrateful owners. As the story draws to an end, he realizes a boyhood dream, to work on the world's largest cattle station, the VRD (Victoria River Downs) only to see the dream fade as the end of an era draws to a close.
