The carnival comes to town, and with it the usual assortment of drifters and oddballs. The host of the rodeo championship finals at his horse stud outside Kingaroy is Rhett Perkins: Aboriginal, Vietnam veteran and former country and western singer. Upon this stage, the heavens conspire to draw together a group of individuals who, although strangers to one another, are interconnected by a distant and extraordinary past.

A fast-paced, lighthearted drama of identity, centering on a rodeo. Religion, Aboriginal mythology and a mechanical bull all play a role in unravelling the complex relationships of the play’s characters.
