Directed by Robert Marchand

Back home, Heather is ready for life in a small Australian country town and settles down to raising a family with Macka.

Catherine is working with Simon, photographing the high-class fashion and pop groups. Her seemingly ideal life is far removed from the country town of her birth. She lives on a luxury houseboat on the Thames with Simon's sister, Anne. Catherine has put her old life and dreams behind her.

Richard is still deeply in love with Catherine and a chance meeting leaves him dejected and hurt. There is no place for him in her new life.

London offers Jack a freedom he previously thought impossible. Teaming up with the anti-establishment Terence, the pair flaunt society's conventions, living life to the fullest.
