Men are gathered on the property ready to begin the search for the lost girl Emily (Memphis Kelly). The father (Paul Kelly) wants the tracker Albert Riley (Kelton Pell) off his property. The men are organised into a search party. The father begins the song, 'This land is mine …’ Eventually, Albert Riley joins the song but not the search with, 'This land is me …’
A lyrical launch into the tale of the lost girl and the story of Albert Riley (known as Tracker Riley), a successful tracker who is denied the chance to find the girl. The use of song in One Night the Moon journeys the audience from beginning to end with an expediency that only song or poetry can achieve in terms of the economy of film language and screen time. Intoxicating from the very beginning, One Night the Moon has the feel of an old campfire yarn.
