Welcome to the Sheila Stories, which chronicle the life of an Australian woman in the 1930s, ‘40s, and ‘50s.

In episode #1, a widower named Thomas seeks to create a strong female role model for his two daughters—Natalie and April—by telling them the Sheila Stories.

In the first story, Sheila Wright, at the age of eighteen, travels from her home in Sydney to Toowoomba, Queensland, with the intention of buying a sheep farm.
