Synopsis

From one of Australia’s most treasured novels comes an exquisitely beautiful Australian classic based on the true story of Jeannie Gunn - a woman who battled the odds as a station master’s wife in outback Australia. For the love of her new husband (Arthur Dignam, The Devil's Playground), Jeannie (AFI Award Winner Angela Punch-McGregor, The Chant Of Jimmie Blacksmith) abandons a high society city life to trek into the vast and wild heart of Australia - where wives are seldom seen, and even less accepted. Enduring isolation, hardships and battling against the sexist and racial prejudice of the Australian outback environment, Jeannie strives to win the friendship and respect of those about her. Shot on location in Australia’s breathtaking Northern Territory, directed by Igor Auzins (Coolangatta Gold), featuring an epic film score by Award-Winning composer Peter Best (The Picture Show Man), and also starring John Jarratt (The Last Outlaw), We Of The Never Never tells the inspiring true story of a woman overcoming all for love.
