In the 1890s Tim Shea, an Irish worker, emigrates to Australia to escape poverty and the class system. He escapes poverty, becoming a shopkeeper, but not class, which is as entrenched in Australia as it was back home. The paradox is that all the while he is deploring it, Shea contributes to it with his racist attitude to people of color. By the author of Schindler's List.
