A sweeping saga of love, deceit and sacrifice adapted from the acclaimed novel by best-selling author Bryce Courtenay, Jessica traces a women's harsh, tumultuous life -in the Australian bush. Set during the early years of the 20th century in the farmlands around Narrandera, a small frontier town in rural New South Wales, this epic period drama stars Leeanna Wallsman as Jessica, a beautiful, spirited tomboy who rises up against the ruthless ambition of her mother, Hester. Wanting to claim Jessica's son for her other daughter Meg, Hester commits Jessica to a mental Asylum before the town's alcoholic English banister, Richard Runche (Sam Neill), Jessica's one trusted ally in the town, is called upon to secure her release and finally, to give her the courage to fight for her child.
