Set in the 1890s gold rush of Western Australia, the film illuminates the forgotten history of Australia’s ‘Ghan' cameleers, who were predominantly Muslim and Sikh men from India, Afghanistan and Persia, who traversed the nation’s vast desert interior, forming unique bonds with local Aboriginal people.
To escape a harsh existence and return home, a young Afghan cameleer partners with a mysterious bushman on the run with two 400oz Crown-marked gold bars. Together the unlikely pair must outwit a zealous police sergeant and his troopers in a race to reach a secret furnace - the one place where they can safely reset the bars to remove the mark of the Crown.

Unsure who to trust, the girl begins to probe into Mother’s dubious nature and uncover the truth of her greater mission.
