It was not the holiday travel either of them expected. Thurston Klotz, owner of Klotz Holdings and Investments Limited, and his business manager, Delumi Vido, decide to drive the company limousine to its meeting at the mine instead of taking the mundane trip by air. While crossing the Nullabour Plains in Western Australia, Klotz turns sharply to miss a kangaroo jumping in the road; the car swerves, crashes, and bursts into flames. Klotz perishes instantly, but Delumi survives. Delumi wanders for days without food and water, only to be found by an Aborigine youth, who brings her to his home of the Ballagalla Tribe. The gracious people help her recover, and she eventually returns home. Delumi is grateful to Wally (short for Wallaballagalla) and the tribe for helping her to survive the ordeal in the desert. As she returns to work at KHII, she must overcome many challenges to make sure the company survives, but she does not forget the kindness of the tribe in the desert.
