Summary *Violence, Coarse Language, Adult Themes* Adapted from Phillip Gwynne's novel, "Deadly, Unna?", this Australian film tells the story of an adolescent boy struggling with family conflicts and inter-racial turmoil in the lonely fishing village where he lives. Set in remote Prospect Bay on the South Australian coast, the story focuses on 16-year-old Gary Black (Nathan Phillips), known as Blacky, a smart kid and an eager but unexceptional player on the local Aussie Rules football team. His best friend, Aboriginal star player Dumby Red (Luke Carroll), lives in the Mission settlement just outside town with his family, including his sister Clarence (Lisa Flanagan), with whom Blacky shares a mutual attraction. While the Aboriginals are welcome on the football field, where their playing skills dominate each match, most of the townsfolk prefer that they keep to themselves. And it's this racial tension that results in Gary becoming tangled in a terrible conflict within his town.
