In 1881, a young man journeys to the far west of New South Wales to become a teacher - but a very different career awaits. Appropriate behaviour for a female teacher in a country town, in 1885, comes under scrutiny, with potentially disastrous consequences for a promising career. A battle for the survival of a regional high school rages between the parents and the Education Department. Spreading the word of God in outback New South Wales leads a dedicated clergyman to plant churches wherever he goes. A chance find by a bushwalker uncovers a life lived over a century before.
