The creator left his footprints forever embedded in the landscape of Djugan country, on the Kimberley coast of Western Australia.

In 2014, a group of young Aboriginal men from the Djugun tribe which had almost completely lost their songs discovered that a law boss from a neighbouring tribe knows some of their cultural songs and dances. They have not been performed for more than 50 years and it was thought they had been lost forever.

Hidden knowledge within this songline leads them on a journey to discover their cultural identity.
