Born in the Dust Bowl, Pinky Wollerman migrates to the foothills of California’s central valley to become a bachelor cattle rancher. The isolation of his hard-working ranch life in the 1950s leads his neighbors to view him with suspicion. However, despite his social awkwardness, Pinky nourishes friendships with misfits, helping him share his love of wide open spaces. Seeking adventure, Pinky travels to the Australian Outback where he falls in love for the first time in his life, while unaware that he is suspected of murder in California. Pinky's story is an ode to expansiveness, the mystery and hope of the heart in love, mystical places, and the beauty of open space on two continents—empty, but timeless and wild.
