A hardened man drives his old, undying pickup truck at speed back to his homestead. He’s late for something.
On the thirsty gravel road he’s met by the silhouette of a young indigenous boy. He weeps profusely, but still carries his plastic bag of belongings with pride.
This day fate has brought together a rugged man and a broken brown boy named Tiro. Lukas seems to be as stern, stoic and stubborn as a stereotypical white farmer of his time.
He is clouded by guilt and sorrow, especially when he gets behind the steering wheel.
The misunderstood man has been partly buried for years now, but this bountiful boy has come to unearth his heart of stone again in ways no one could know.
With a sudden burst of talent a new path was about to be unbound. While they thought they were living, a glorious, shining gift was found. A loving teacher unraveled the song within him. Tiro came from slums and abuse, but theaters and music halls were about to be filled by his singing.
A land of unknown treasure was waiting like a shipwreck beneath the surface, but they had to break racial boundaries set by forefathers first. One gained a father, one gained a son, both became the men they were always meant to be.
Together they uncovered, unchained and set hasty horses free.
