Storyline

For the tourist travelling across Australia, the Aborigines are often seen as tramps or drunks, wandering aimlessly on the streets of towns in the outback having lost touch with their culture. From the early 1800s to the late 1960s, the Aborigines were gradually dispossessed of their lands for breeding, farming, and mineral extraction. Exiled or forced to settle down, their children were often taken away from them so they would integrate the values of white men. Today only 390,000 Aborigines remain, less than 3% of the Australian population. With the help of churches and associations, but most especially at the instigation of their descendants, they are starting to get back on their feet. It is precisely these men and woman of all ages that we will be meeting in this film.
