Summary "This documentary is a parable about the clash between the oldest living culture in the world and the industrialised world. The Aboriginal people of the Kimberley region in Western Australia's far north believe "country" is not just a piece of land that is to be bought and sold - but the very fabric of their being. However a brave new world is fast approaching, and with it, vast riches are on offer, promises of a better life. This documentary asks, "Do these people stay with the old ways and continue life as usual; or do they take the new and give up the very thing that they define themselves by?"" -- SBS website
