Scott McDinny, a young Garrwa song man, is devastated when Borroloola town camps are bombarded with water contamination notices. No one seems to be taking responsibility in the Northern Territory and with continued mining up river his family’s way of life is under constant threat.
Determined to shield his Gulf Country homelands from mining using ancient song and dance, Scott sets out to find answers knowing that his Elders will never leave their ancestral homelands.
On this quest he reveals deeper emotional resonances in the silence of poisoned water, but also rediscovers hope in the healing power of story, family and culture.
