Retired racing car driver Al (Lawrence), who now runs a wrecker's yard in Horopito, is more interested in his cars than in this wife. To Al's anger, she gets friendly with the local cop, Al's best friend, and leaves taking their young daughter with her. But Al wants to keep his daughter and abducts her for the bush, but returns to town when she becomes ill. Many memorable scenes - especially with Lawrence. Put this on your "must see" list.
