Following the death of her mother, Tess Silverman journeys to Drovers Run, a rural cattle station in South Australia, to reconnect with her only remaining family: her father Jack and sister Claire, whom she has not seen in the 20 years since her mother left Jack and moved to the city, taking a young Tess with her.

Tess arrives into a complex situation and finds herself meeting an adoring father but a hostile sister whom she no longer knows and who resents her sudden arrival and even quicker ability to win over Jack, something she herself has never been able to accomplish.

Tess is content to make her visit a short one and continue on to Venice to move on with her life but the sudden death of her father forces Tess and Claire to overcome their differences and the many obstacles before them to realise their father's dream of running Drovers Run together.
