Unlucky-in-love Danny Morgan (Rhys Ifans) ties helium balloons to a deck chair as a party joke but accidentally gets untethered and ends up floating high across Australia. Eventually, he crash lands and is rescued by small-town traffic cop Glenda (Miranda Otto). Danny is greatly appreciated by the townspeople for being inventive and clever, and he and Glenda begin a whimsical romance. When his past comes back to haunt him, his new life gives him strength to face it.
