Brumby Plains is an isolated place, and the outside world doesn't intrude much here. But when Sam and George discover a refugee child washed up on the shores of their buffalo station, the rest of the world is brought a lot closer. An accident has taken Mac and Sarah far away, and Uncle Mungo has strong views about refugees, so the two brothers hide the child while they work out what to do. Sam discovers that it's a lot harder to stand up for what you believe in than to follow the crowd.
