Central Australia 1940. Two Aboriginal couples — George and Milly, and Max and Gina — live on a small station in the middle of the outback. Whilst George and Max are away fencing Max receives news that Gina has given birth to their son Jacob. Four months later George and Max return home. Max is thrilled at the prospect of meeting his son for the first time, but the joyous occasion soon turns to disillusionment as he learns the truth about baby Jacob.
