A young man emigrates from England having been wrongly accused of a crime. In New Zealand he takes a job on a Hawkes Bay sheep farm, where he quickly adapts to the life and falls in love with Hazel, joint owner of a nearby station. The station manager also fancies Hazel, she rejects his advances. It transpires that the manager was the person who committed the crime back in England and, after he is arrested, the young couple are happily united.
(Note: Hazel is actually Mary Judd, daughter of Albert and Julie Judd who also feature in the film and whose names are incorrectly spelled in the credits).
