The struggle of a little boy forced to choose between his familiar, isolated life and the challenges of the outside world.
Storm Boy (Greg Rowe, Blue Fin) lives with his recluse father, Tom (Peter Cummins, Return to Snowy River), on South Australia’s lonely and beautiful coast. Here, his free spirit roams with his pet pelican, Mr. Percival, and his secret Aboriginal friend, Fingerbone Bill (David Gulpilil, Cargo). He knows no other world. But suddenly there are intruders, the local school teacher who wants him to take lessons, a resentful wild-life ranger, duck shooters… Storm Boy, growing up, is forced to choose between a life of continued isolation and the challenges of the outside world.
