The Screen Guide

A musical drama set in 1930s outback Australia. Entranced by the beautiful, beaming moon, a young girl steps out of her window. When her parents check, she is gone. The local police recommend Aboriginal Tracker Albert, but the father insists 'no blackfella is to set foot on my land'. Albert watches helplessly as her every trace is stamped to dust by the white men conducting a line search. Based on the true story of Aboriginal Tracker Riley in Dubbo.
