Opening linesEdit

Australia 1840...

...travellers who ventured into the trackless outback found an uncivilized wilderness - peopled by outlaws, known as bushrangers... swagmen, itinerant wanderers... and native aborigines... a vast land of mystery and superstition, where lonely stage roads served as the only means of communication.


The coach driven by Dan and Chis is wrecked when it runs into a heavy chain deliberately placed in the road by a gang of bushrangers. The passenger is killed in the crash and Cobb kills two of the outlaws in self-defense. After Chris returns to Bathurst, he receives an Aboriginal death-stick, marking him to die at the next full moon. Although Dan urges him to remain in town, Chris decides to meet the curse - and the man who wants revenge and drives three passengers, a convict, his guard and a pretty woman deep into the heart of the outback to confront his would-be killer. - Source:
