In the Australian Outback, the Carmody family—Paddy, Ida and their teenage son Sean—are sheep drovers, always on the move.
Ida and Sean want to settle down and buy a farm. Paddy wants to keep moving.
A sheep-shearing contest, the birth of a child, drinking, gambling and a race horse will all have a part in the final decision.
Featuring an all-star cast led by Deborah Kerr, Robert Mitchum and Sir Peter Ustinov.
