Two lost children
A man in search of himself
An unforgiving land
An unlikely romance
Matt Hudson is an emotionally damaged homicide detective who has dented his code of honour and lost a clear purpose in life. To fulfil his father's dying wish he embarks on a road trip along the famed Birdsville Track in the deserts of South Australia driving his father's old 1947 Dodge pick-up. Matt's journey involves several narratives and time frames: Australian Outback history; his Big Adventure when he and his sister were lost children in Sturt Stony Desert; his search for significant people of the past; and his inner philosophical journey to overcome despondency and guilt. Gradually the narratives converge to some surprising and dramatic disclosures.
