Based on the novel by Nevil Shute, The Far Country is set in a beautiful secluded valley in the rugged Victorian high country. It is just after the second world war and an English girl from a sheltered background, Jennifer Morton, falls in love with Czech migrant Carl Zlinter, who is unable to practise his profession of medicine in Australia. In a land of hope, at a time of bitter resentment and hostile attitudes, the future was everything they could wish for But Carl is not all that he seems and even Jennifer is not privy to his dark secret. A secret that, when exposed, will shatter all his dreams and expectations.
