In this light romantic comedy, Daisy (Jan Adele) is an old woman living out her life on a run-down farm in the Australian outback. She has grown slovenly and lazy, rarely venturing out of bed. When Simon (Sean Scully), a young and rootless man lands on her doorstep, at first she has nothing to offer him but abuse. He endures her vituperation and shames her into taking an interest in her life for the first time since her husband Harry died. Before long, they have taken a shine to each other. These developments don't sit well with Daisy's daughter Joan (Shaunna O'Grady), who is determined to ship her off to an old-age home and fears she may be acquiring a stepfather who is younger than she is. After she finds out that Simon is on the run from the law, she triumphantly informs Daisy of this fact. To her great chagrin, this information has no effect whatsoever.
