After the death of his father, proud young Jim Craig (Tom Burlinson) sets out to become his own man. Taking a job with horse rancher Harrison (Kirk Douglas), Craig is treated poorly by the more experienced cowboys, but wins the heart of the rancher’s daughter, Jessica (Sigrid Thornton).

When one of the horses escapes and the blame falls on Jim, he has return to the hills where he grew up, in order to find the horse and come back a man. Based on the Banjo Paterson’s poem “The Man from Snowy River”.

The Man from Snowy River was a major critical and box-office success when released in 1982, becoming the highest-grossing Australian film until Crocodile Dundee was released four years later.
