Summary
In late 19th-century Australian society, a headstrong woman refuses to follow convention. This film follows Sybylla Melvyn as she grows from an insecure tomboy to a self-assured woman. Sybylla wants to be a writer and shocks her family and friends by her insistence on following her dream. Despite the objections of her family and acquaintances, she rejects the marriage proposal of the rich Harry Beecham to continue going her own way, in spite of the odds stacked against her in a repressive Victorian environment
