Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Twelve-year old Barney (Brett Maxworthy) is traveling during the 1880s by sailing ship from Sydney to Melbourne to meet up with his father. When their ship meets with a calamity along the way, Barney hooks up with another survivor, Rafe Duggan (Sean Kramer), to journey the rest of the way across the continent on foot. However, despite the fact that Rafe is a grown man, it is Barney, with his intelligence and common sense, who pulls them through each crisis along the way.
