It is 1987. Bet and Michael are newly married and their hearts are set on the Australian dream - to own their own home. Like generations before them they have crossed the Nullarbor to seek their fortune.
'The Hope' is a corrugated-iron mining town where few fortunes are made and few marriages survive. Bet and Michael are innocents among The Hope's hardy inhabitants: Mrs G - fourth generation goldfields; Charlie - the topless barmaid; Boss - the enigmatic boss man, and the eerie presence of generations of previous occupants.
