Two old college friends meet again after a break of a few years. Robert is a sheep-farmer,who has recently lost his father in an accident on the farm. He's comfortably-off and enjoys his work,but is directionless. His only living relative,his grandmother is planning to leave the farm soon to move into a care-home. He unexpectedly meets up with his second cousin Joanie,an attractive and unattached nurse and life takes a turn for the better. His friend Jim's life is headed in the opposite direction,as he faces divorce,poverty and frustration. A surprising wind-fall comes his way,but pushes the police sergeant towards more temptation.
