A premonition of disaster hits Danny Molloy as his plane lands at Adelaide airport. The 16-year-old street kid from Brooklyn has come to South Australia to make contact with his father whom he has not seen for ten years. The accents, scenery and people are a bewildering jumble to Danny as he finds his way to the remote homestead where his father Nat, an ex-Vietnam pilot who runs a crop dusting outfit, lives. It is a shock to Nat Molloy, when his son suddenly turns up at his outback home. He is now living with a divorcee. Sal, and her pretty teenage daughter, Stevie. Not only has his lifestyle changed since he split up with Danny’s mother; he now faces financial ruin and has agreed to fly a consignment of marijuana down from the North. It is a bad time for the boy to appear and from their first meeting it is obvious the father and son’s relationship is not going to be a smooth one. They argue and fight and through a series of misadventures, Danny ends up in a local brawl, gets arrested for stealing a car and narrowly misses giving the game away when he destroys the barn containing the marijuana. Through all the traumas, he has two allies. Stevie with whom he strikes up a romantic friendship and Kulu, an old Aboriginal medicine man who explains to him that a conspiracy of circumstances is at work. When Nat’s plane crashes in the mountains and he is badly hurt. It is up to Danny, the street kid raised among pinball parlors and fast food joints to find a way out of the wilderness.moreless
