All Kookaburra Downs, Australia awaits Jessica, the heiress of her great uncle Eamonn McGill's trust, about to expire a century after his death. The land (the whole valley) is what the sheep farmers want to continue leasing. Her lawyer was killed in an attempt to make her miss the deadline. Mayor Tim Jarvis is blackmailed by a bauxite mining company eager to buy it via the town council. Tim's son Donald Jarvis, who embezzled town funds in his name to pay gambling debts to a loan shark, calls a meeting with Jessica.

So, the bauxite mine will not only get some of you layabouts jobs, it's gonna put Kookaburra Downs on the map so to speak.
And to hell with our sheep, right? Sheep-men have been supporting Kookaburra Downs for two centuries, Jarvis!
