Into the cruel and greedy Colony of New South Wales rides an asthmatic Don Quixote with a social conscience -- the new Governor, Sir George Gipps. Seven white men are hanged, the first in the history of the Colony to be executed for murdering Aborigines. The backlash is immediate and, when Gipps provokes land-hungry William Wentworth, the clash becomes vicious. One of them must be destroyed. Privately spurred on by his publicly timorous wife, hampered by an inept Colonial Secretary, a victim of his own poor health, blunt personality and a past indiscretion, Gipps continues to drive for the jugular.
