Jack Thompson is Foley, the best shearer on every station for miles around. Sunday Too Far Away is Foley's story of sweat-soaked days and rum-soaked night, of bloody two-fisted punch ups... of scab labour brought in during the shearers strike of '56 and of the poor old bastard who runs the place: the cocky (farmer) who is terrified that one slip of the shears will render his prize ram good for nothing but mint sauce.

Sunday Too Far Away is a classic of Australian cinema and Jack Thompson at his best.
