The Story

South Scotland, 1850. Life is getting tough for Andie and Jessie.

Their irate landlord throws them out of their shop in South Scotland. Jessie is pregnant and Andie cannot find work.

Their brother John strikes it rich in Australia and sends for them.

On the way, they are shipwrecked on desolate King Island. Andie is swept overboard during the storm. Jessie gives birth on the beach.

John, meanwhile, has gone into hiding after being accused of a murder.

Can Andie and Jess be rescued?

And what of John hiding out at Hanging Rock?
