Summary *Coarse Language, Sexual References*Indigenous superhero Deadly Dave once again fixes the unfixable and we learn about one woman's fight to be able to identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander on the online dating site OKCupid.A classic advertisement from the eighties is unearthed - this time from the long defunct adult chat line Girls Gone Native, where they promise that it's 'always wet season', we visit the Housewives of Narromine, and get a dubious singing lesson from the Tiddas.Meanwhile a spotlight is turned on the ALF - the Aboriginal Liberation Front - a radical paramilitary group comprised of white middle class kids, led by the charismatic, yet insane, Marcy. Their aim - to free their Indigenous brothers and sisters from the shackles of white middle class oppression and repatriate them back into the bush - whether they like it or not. The only thing standing between the ALF and an unsuspecting Indigenous population is Kevin, a mild mannered schoolteacher.PRODUCTION DETAILS:Scarlett Pictures, produced by Kath Shelper and Mark O'Toole. ABC Executive Producer and Head of Indigenous Sally Riley
