A touching and tender story about an unusual childhood. How far would you go to find yourself? When orphaned Arthur Hobhouse is shipped to Australia after WWII, he loses his sister, his country and everything he knows. The coming years test him to his limits, as he endures mistreatment, neglect and forced labour in the Australian outback. But, Arthur is saved, again and again, by his love of the sea.
