Young orphaned Daniel shears sheep, droves cattle, then farms in partnership with his drover boss and an Aboriginal mate pre the Great War of 1939-1945 after an arson attack at Cloncurry in outback Queensland. He, wife Delia and children begin a new life on the east coast after losing partners and relatives to the harsh land conditions. Old enemies return to make the transition difficult.
