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>

outstanding picture! i saw it as a CBS late night movie at the age of 10
15 October 2006 | by ecopeland22See all my reviews

This was an underdog movie if ever i saw one. He (Beau Bridges) was wrongly accused of murder and forced to the Austrailia penal colony. He mets this tenasious woman (played by actress Jane Merrow) who teaches him the value of love and commitment. Like his brother (Jeff Bridges in the Fisherking) he plays a character trying to get out of a bad situation by paying his dues and moving on. However, he realizes that this life is really the life he longed for and together they build a new life in Austrilia. The real irony of this movie is that Austrilia will not let you into the country if you have a criminal record. One of my absolute favorites!
