It’s the week before Christmas, 1891. The Australian bush is tinder dry as a fierce drought brings an infant nation to its knees. When eight year old Ned O’Day mistakes a roguish ex-miner for Father Christmas, Ned’s firm belief and sense of wonder bring about a startling turn of events. Stars John Waters and Dee Wallace.
