Description

The critically-acclaimed Australian mini-series starring Bryan Brown and Rebecca Smart, is presented in it's original uncut TV format of two 90-minute episodes.
Returning home from the outback, Macauley (Bryan Brown) finds his wife in bed with another man. In the heat of the moment he vents his anger by taking custody of their young daughter Buster (Rebecca Smart) and heads for the back blocks of South Australia. Macauley, the loner, the streetfighter with blood on his knuckles, a chip on his shoulder and anger in his heart, finds himself stuck with a four year-old daughter in tow.
Mac struggles with his ill-chosen role of father and mother to the child which is his, but who he doesn't know. His resentment grows as Buster intrudes into the world Macauley forged for himself alone. For "Shiralee" means burden, but his daughter is a burden which Macauley must come to embrace.
