Compared on Morris West's novel, this screenplay by Tim Burstall and Ross Dimsey focuses more heavily on the question of land rights and the clash between Aboriginal and settler cultures (in the conflict between Lance Dillon and Mundaru) and pulls back on the romantic sub-plot between Dillon's wife Mary and local policeman Sergeant Neil Adams.
