Summary Off-beat, humourous series which provides anecdotes of life in the bush, and sheds light on Warlpiri life, from gathering bush tucker and living in a humpy, to football and rock an roll. In each episode, the five bush mechanics from the remote community of Yuendumu are presented with a new set of challenges - catching a car thief, getting a nephew out of jail, racing to an outback rock concert, and travelling thousands of miles to gather pearl shells for a rainmaking ceremony
