'Coming home can be harder than leaving.'
Outback Australia, 1924: Matron Marion Henderson of Idavale Private Hospital wants romance in her life and promises she'll go out with the first man who asks. That man is Bill Carter, ex-pastoralist, ex-soldier, wanderer, whose guilt about leaving home for war has kept him from returning ever since. Marion wants someone reliable with whom to share her life, but Bill's behaviour rekindles Marion's memories of her war-damaged first husband.
Can they face their ghosts and create a future together?
