The Screen Guide

ROCK OPERA documents the saga of a small community of allied Rock Wallabies living on a lonely outcrop in Far North Queensland. It follows their fight to survive the drought, and after, the good times. They are the first recorded monogamous macro pods and their society is full of tensions as they kick and punch their way to shelters and mates.
