Al Shaw (Bruno Lawrence) retires from auto racing to take over his father's garage in rural New Zealand. His cosmopolitan wife, Jacqui (Anna Jemison), is happy that he's no longer risking his life on the Grand Prix circuit, but she quickly becomes bored in their small town.

Al, in desperation, decides to kidnap Georgie and head further out into the frontier.
