Plot Summary
As World War I rages in the distant background, Jamie Carr (Christopher Pate) passes through the last year of high school in what he's always thought of as his quiet Queensland town. But his opinion of it changes dramatically when the rantings of a loose-cannon preacher (Gerard Kennedy) rile up the townsfolk in ways he didn't think possible. Jamie soon finds himself inadvertently swept up into a manhunt, and in the process decides that city life might be more to his liking.
