An Australian classic. The Shiralee tells the story of Macauley, a rough, tough and proud street fighter and "swaggie" who stands up for what he believes in. Forced to walk the roads in Australia's vast and beautiful Outback in search of work during the Great Depression, he is away for long periods. He returns home unexpectedly to find his wife in bed with another man. Judging her unfit to raise their four-year-old daughter, Buster, he takes the child on the road with him. Buster becomes his "Shiralee": his burden. So begins a story of a growing love between a father and his daughter.
