It is 1941 and English aristocrat, Lady Sarah Ashley, inherits a ranch in the Australian outback, but when cattle barons plot to take her land, she is forced, reluctantly at first, to team up with a rough-hewn cattle driver. Together with a young aboriginal orphan the unlikely band must take 1500 head of cattle across hundreds of miles of the country's most unforgiving land only to face the Japanese forces on their arrival in Darwin. Australia is Baz Luhrmann's (‘Moulin Rouge', ‘Romeo and Juliet') latest sprawling epic. An old school romantic adventure set in the stunning Australian outback.
