Father Beitz has a dream. From his home in 1870s Hamburg, he plans to pioneer an idyllic German community in faraway Australia, in a backwoods hamlet, barely settled, called Bundaberg. He soon finds other dreamers eager to join him, thrilled by the prospect of a sunny clime, cheap arable land, and their own Lutheran society.

But when they arrive they find the land, bought for them by Father Beitz, is nothing but a jungle, and before long it seems the trials of their new home may force the community to disintegrate. As time passes, a combination of courage and determination carries the pioneers beyond their fears, but a new threat awaits. Only an elderly Aborigine mystic sees the evil that threatens them, but can he warn them in time?
