The Screen Guide

Amy Winthrop is a young Aboriginal woman who has been charged with wounding her husband Freddie during a domestic argument. It is expected by all concerned that she will simply plead guilty and receive a good behaviour bond. Colin McKenzie, the newly appointed and inexperienced Legal Aid Lawyer, is outraged by this expectations and persuades Amy to plead her innocence. This comedy of errors raises the issue of how inaccessible a non-Aboriginal judicial system can be when applied to Aboriginal culture.
