An amiable ex-convict (Bryan Brown) arrives in a small Australian costal city (Beachport, South Australia) with the intent of duping the populace into investing money in a phony excavation of a sunken ship, which is allegedly filled with gold. Unexpectedly, he falls in love with a young widow (Karen Allen) and becomes a father-figure to her young son. His new romance complicates his planned scam, and he can’t decide whether to carry his plan through or stay with the woman.
