Description: In the tradition of "Save The Last Dance," "Billy Elliott" and "August Rush" comes the musical drama Broken Hill. Tommy was born and raised on a rocky, drought-ridden sheep station in the middle of the Australian Outback. He works at the station and does all he can to appease his demanding father but in his heart wants to be a great musician. That all changes when Tommy meets his new class mate Kat, a bold and brash beauty, who at first doesn't notice him at all. As Tommy tries desperately to get her attention his antics cause him to fall into hot water with the local police. He luckily escapes jail and chooses to do community service at the nearby prison to stay out of trouble. Soon the stakes for Tommy are raised when his music teacher and mentor lands him an audition for the elite music conservatory. Against all odds, Tommy gains the affections of Kat, finds a way to reconcile with his father and conducts the concert of his life.
