When Red Dog first arrives in the dusty Western Australian mining town of Dampier in 1971, he has no master and jumps into any lap or any car that wants him. But when American floater John (Josh Lucas) comes to town to work as the driver of a workers' bus, Red Dog takes to him. The locals, like publican Jack and hardman Peeto love him, all except for the caravan park manger and his cat, as does newcomer Nancy (Rachael Taylor) who works in admin. She and John become a couple and Red Dog their much loved pet. So when John fails to come home one day, Red Dog waits for him ... and waits ... and waits. Despondent, he finally sets off to track him down on an epic journey around Western Australia.
