Storyline

Adam is a young American wrongly accused of being an accomplice to murder while on shore leave in Liverpool. He is sentenced to death by hanging but the sentence is commuted to twenty years in a convict settlement in Australia. The governor of the colony has a scheme in mind to settle Australia by allowing convicts to marry and by giving them land, and Adam is the perfect choice to prove his scheme is viable. He is partnered with Bess, a young Irish lass, and together they endure the hardships of the Australian outback. Written by Kevin Steinhauer <K.Steinhauer@BoM.GOV.AU>

A warmhearted romance!
21 August 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorites! In addition to showing the deplorable situation of a convict in 18th century Australia, the movie shows how these very convicts settled the outback, much like American pioneers. So much for redeeming qualities! This is just a good movie, with good actors. I wish it were available on video!
