Macauley is a swagman on the road in the 1940s looking for work. He’s a laid back, laconic sort of bloke but when he gets landed with his daughter after his drunken play-girl wife in Adelaide makes him face up to what she believes are his responsibilities, neither he nor his daughter are ready for each other. But in the beginning he’s all she’s got, and at the end, she’s all he’s got.

Returning home from the outback, Macauley (Bryan Brown) finds his wife in bed with another man. In the heat of the moment he vents his anger by taking custody of their young daughter Buster (Rebecca Smart) and heads for the back blocks of South Australia. Macauley, the loner, the streetfighter with blood on his knuckles, a chip on his shoulder and anger in his heart, finds himself stuck with a four year-old daughter in tow. Mac struggles with his ill-chosen role of father and mother to the child which is his, but who he doesn’t know. His resentment grows as Buster intrudes into the world Macauley forged for himself alone. For “Shiralee” means burden, but his daughter is a burden which Macauley must come to embrace.
