In this biopic, Irish emigrant Peter Lalor (Chips Rafferty) travels in 1854 to Victoria, Australia, where he takes an immediate interest in the gold rush. Moved by the aspirations of the miners and disgusted by the indifferent government and callous law enforcement, he becomes a spokesman for the miners after making a fiery speech on their behalf. Lalor is elected to legally represent the reform movement, and his actions set the stage for a crucial moment in Australia's developing democracy.
