The words Dharrmbungi Marrangigi are granted by Yolgnu Elder Mrs Gurruwiwi to reflect the ethos of Oneland and represent 'learning together'.

This film documents the Elders and schoolchildren in the far northwest NSW township of Brewarrina welcoming non-Indigenous schoolgirls from Sydney into their remote community and how the two cultures together form a future for Australia.

Sydney-based book publisher, filmmaker and netball coach Susie Agoston, who has strong ties with the remote Aboriginal community of Brewarrina, invites girls from her netball teams to join her on a 1600 klilometre road trip to meet the First Nations schoolchildren and to have the opportunity to meet the Elders – custodians of Traditional Lore and knowledge, history and heritage – of one of the oldest living Cultures in the world today.

The girls from Sydney were born in Australia and have lived here all their lives. They may have had the opportunity to travel the world, but they have never met an Aboriginal person.
