While a lifelong drover and small child debilitated by chronic illness fight for survival in the harsh Australian environment, the town below is traumatised by the same weather event, bringing many hidden secrets to light. The winter of 1953 was cast upon Eagle Brook.
Clouded by dark shadows of past happenings, the townsfolk, will be left with a sense of unrest for generations to come. With many searching for a fresh start in the city, while others are left to face their demons. No matter which, all are confronted by the emotions of love, self-acceptance, excitement, sadness and grief. Others are challenged through the abuse of alcohol, homelessness, violence, bullying and an ever-changing society.
In searching for true inner peace, some will even question the need to return to where it began before it is all too late.
