In the Australian Outback, the Carmody family, Paddy (Robert Mitchum), Ida (Deborah Kerr), and their teenage son Sean (Michael Anderson, Jr.), are sheep drovers, always on the move. Ida and Sean want to settle down and buy a farm. Paddy wants to keep moving. A sheep-shearing contest, the birth of a child, drinking, gambling, and a race horse will all have a part in the final decision.

During the horse race at the conclusion of the film, the camera is positioned ahead of the race shooting back at the field of horses which are running towards the camera. In the lower right corner of the frame, the dust kicking up from the vehicle carrying the camera is visible and clearly is separated from the field of horses. Also to the right of the racing horses behind where they had just run, the tire marks from the camera's vehicle can be clearly seen on the track. See more
