Landing a job on a ranch in Southern Australia, "Mac" Macauley falls hard on his boss's daughter, Lily. But a wealthy rival conspires to have him run out of town. Mac finds work as a carnival boxer and weds fellow worker Marge, more out of despair over his lost Lily than out of love. When their marriage eventually sours, Mac hits the road again, taking their reluctant daughter, Buster, along for the journey. / Buster's increasingly serious illness forces Mac to swallow his pride and go to work for the one person who will have him--Lily. After nursing Buster back to health, Mac turns vagabond once again, with Buster weighing him down more heavily than ever. But when he faces the prospect of losing his daughter either to death or to the vengeful Marge, Mac is forced to make the most difficult decision of his life.
