Childhood friends, Elsie and Tara are from opposite sides of the class divide in the dead end town of Culvert. As soon as possible, they make an empowered dash to escape, leaving their boys behind. They find freedom mustering cattle on a remote outback station but scandal and a terrible betrayal send them on separate paths.
Elsie becomes an internationally successful country music singer but nearly dies from an overdose. It is only with the help of her old friend Tara, back in their home town, that she finds the answers she's been seeking.
Meanwhile the boys have implemented a crazy, ingenious and just plain dangerous scheme to create fuel from the most unlikely of sources...
