The True story of Stephen Walls, a young Australian farm boy, whose disappearance galvanized a continent into action. Taught to be wary of strangers, the boy cannot know that the boisterous hordes of volunteers are his saviors and not his enemies. After four tense days, hopes wanes. At last, a group of searchers spot the young Stephen, and its members are able to convice him that they want to help him reach home and family. Written by
The movie's opening prologue states: "This film is based on a true story. The events portrayed actually happened. In 1960, for four days and three nights a nation waited, hoped and prayed . . . For one family and the people close at hand those days and nights re-shaped their lives. To them, in particular, we dedicate this film, along with the thousands of volunteers involved in the search for Stephen Walls". See more »

Because this is a true story, it lacks the action that many people desire in a movie, but it is a very good story! This is the flip side of the message we tell our children "Don't talk to strangers". In this case, a young boy should, as they are the ones trying to rescue him!
This movie may seem a bit too long, but just watch and listen to see and hear, just as the little boy did, the strangers (rescuers) and maybe you can understand his confusion. The emotion is great! I promise, that in the end (if you like a good tear jerker), it will pay off!!!
