Hans-Albert Ritter is looking forward to his duties as Pastor for a settlement of German emigrants in the Queensland coastal port of Bundaberg. But by the time Ritter arrives, the community is in jeopardy - the land that was bought to be turned into a co-operative farm is nothing but impenetrable jungle. Ritter throws himself into his role, beginning with the essential foundation of a church, staunchly supported by the Meissner family. But it's not long before an Aboriginal Elder sees trouble brewing. Personal relationships within the group deteriorate as the Pastor's strict regulations divide the community. Can this be the end of their dreams so soon?
