In one of the most remote corners of indigenous Australia a boy will soon become a man. Following preparations for the ritual, the film shows the life lessons he receives from his father and grandfather. Set against the political backdrop of government pressure to close "uneconomic outstations," it also shows modernity almost imperceptibly penetrating their community. Winner, Best Documentary, Best Director, Australian Director's Guild.
