In the Nullabor desert, west from Ceduna in South Australia, two elderly sisters from the Tjilkaba community, Doreen and Gladys Miller, re-visit the now derelict homesteads and stations where they grew up and had worked, to pass on their stories to younger family members. They tell their “granny stories” to their daughters and grandchildren to teach them about the self-reliance they learned as young adults, and about the sustaining value of their traditional culture.
A group of young women and children join them on their often emotional journey into the past, as they visit the abandoned ruins of Whitewell homestead and the deserted Colona shearing station.
They also talk about the importance of keeping their Wirangu language and knowledge about the bush alive, and they help to make books for children to use in schools.
