Four men travelling home in a car from a farmers' meeting entertain themselves with yarns. The lay preacher philosophises on monotony and hope causing the men to think about drought and the future. They decide to visit Mr. Bancroft on the way home. Bancroft tells them his life story and of how water had played a large part in his decisions from the time he had run away from home.
