Ten-year-old Dujuan is a child-healer, a good hunter and speaks three languages. Yet Dujuan is 'failing' in school and facing increasing scrutiny from welfare and the police.
As he travels perilously close to incarceration, his family fight to give him a strong Arrernte education alongside his western education lest he becomes another statistic. We walk with him as he grapples with these pressures, shares his truths and somewhere in-between finds space to dream, imagine and hope for his future self.
After sold out premieres at Hot Docs Toronto, DOC NYC, Sydney and Melbourne Film Festivals and the United Nations, this much anticipated film is a wake up call for the Australian education system told from the rarely heard perspective of an Aboriginal child.
