Dave Power, a young and ambitious caretaker of a racehorse named Archer.
In order to get Archer to the 1861 Melbourne Cup, where the horse must compete, Power takes him on a 600-mile Outback odyssey, fraught with excitement and peril.
The horse then wins the race. Incredibly, this picaresque character study was based on a true story.
