William’s father decides his son must leave the village in country Ireland to break the poverty cycle, and puts the sixteen year old on a cart for Belfast.

Swept along by fate and determination, William leaves his girlfriend behind and uses his wits in Belfast to obtain work, and finds his way onto a Steam Sailing ship bound for Australia, deciding he will follow the gold rush. Threatened onboard by bullies and the elements during the voyage, his courage and patience are tested as he heads to the unknown new colony of Australia, and a new life.

Never easy, sometimes funny, and often dangerous, William’s adventures show how one determined man can change his future.
