In 1840s England, an American man (Beau Bridges) is wrongly convicted of murder and sentenced to 20 years in a hellish Australian penal colony. He gets an unexpected chance at freedom when he's paired up with a tough female inmate (Jane Merrow) for a special project that sees the unlikely couple given a patch of land to care for in an effort to tame the harsh wilderness of the Outback. John Mills, James Booth also star in this offbeat drama. 117 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
