Stanley Harris(Owen Black), a drifter with some distant local roots, returns to the small country district of Netherwood. He unwittingly inherits a prime piece of land coveted by local wealthy landowner Duncan Moore(Peter McCauley), aided by his thuggish son Mex(Will Hall). Stan attracts the attentions of Maria(Miriama Smith) and complicated love interests develop. A slow-burning war ensues and culminates in a primal battle between the men for power and dominance. This Western style drama was shot around the Canterbury towns of Waipara and Amberley with attractive photography and memorable music. Worth a view.
