Overview

Blending rough-and-tumble drama with romance, this story is set in Australia shortly after World War II, when waves of immigration brought thousands of people to Australia's rural prairies. Baringa is a small town built around an abandoned military base; primarily home to migrant laborers, Baringa is the temporary home to people from all over the vast Australian continent, as well as many of the European nations, some of whom are looking to start a new life, while others are trying to live down their pasts. Originally produced as a mini-series for Australian television, Bordertown featured Cate Blanchett, three years before she rose to fame with her breakthrough role in Elizabeth; the cast also includes Alex Maglet, Geoff Morrell, Christine Tremarco, and Hugo Weaving.
