An engaged man falls for another woman who recently moved from Ireland to Australia.

An epic scale narrative of Australian history from master filmmaker Charles Chauvel (Jedda), Heritage spans the earliest days of white settlement in 1788, across some fifty years to the 1930’s. The story follows the life experiences of the Morrison and Parry families as they establish themselves within a new and challenging colony in Sydney. Facing the many trials and tribulations of settlement life, their actions would go toward shaping the nation. Along with progress and burgeoning offspring, their story continues into the next century, where the tale of a new generation is told, a tale of descendants on a Northern outback cattle station facing their own challenges and of a high flying and impressionable young heroine.
