Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Storm Boy (Greg Rowe) is a rambunctious Australian youth, living along the coastline with his freewheeling father. At the behest of an aging aborigine, Storm Boy takes care of an uncared-for nest of pelicans. As he develops a sense of responsibility, the boy's outlook on the world matures. This serves to strengthen his devotion to his father and to his new-found aborigine friend. Based on a novel by Colin Thiele.
