The Screen Guide

Five people come together on a dusty, desolate cotton field. Angry at the world and each other, racial tensions are ignited as Leroy, Mick, Amy and Vance work alongside each other in the heat of the day. Ruby, Leroy's mother, is the only one who notices the uneasy sky forcing the elements to change. When a violent dust storm awakes, racial differences must be put aside as the five weather the storm together. Australia's history, black and white, is revealed as the storm unearths the secrets that lie beneath the surface of the land.
