Thalu is a live-action series that focuses on a group of Aboriginal children who undertake a journey to save their country from the threat of a mysterious dust cloud and its inhabitants, the Takers.

Thalu takes Roebourne community stories and weaves Ngarluma culture with the classic heroes’ journey shot in and around Roebourne. The show mixes traditional and modern Aboriginal storytelling and is an ode to the Pilbara and its people.
