Just five years after welcoming her beloved father home from the Second World War Louise Miller is married and whisked off to the outback. The whole world is in a state of transition with women gaining independence and old social standards being replaced. Australian ingenuity seems to be overcoming the tyranny of distance. 

In these years, post war optimism collides with harsh conditions in the bush… it’s up to Louise and her husband John to make a life for themselves, in conditions where even the animals seem to survive by eating stones. Louise learns from the aboriginal people who occupied the land long before white station owners. 

Interwoven with their personal stories is the story of Australia at a crucial moment in its history, when the new world was beginning and anything was possible.
