The husband and wife of a family living in the Australian Outback are at odds in this dramatic film. The husband, Paddy Carmody, wants to continue living a nomadic existence herding sheep, while his wife Ida and son Sean are tired of moving from place to place as sundowners who pitch their tent every night at dusk in a different location. They desperately want to be able to call one place home. Ida continues to keep the faith, saving money to put down on a farm, but Paddy's gambling may destroy the dream she is working toward.
