Rigby, Adelaide, South Australia, 1973.
The boys of the Murra Wanda Pony Club form an emergency search and rescue squad, but they deliberately leave out all the girls. Then Chris Hales teams up with Helen El Shariff at the gymkhana, and it’s more than Ann Rankin can stand. Then an express is derailed during a storm, and Chris and Ann have to work side by side to rescue the train passengers as the dam breaks and the flood waters pour down.
