In a not-too-distant future, the world is being poisoned and Europeans are unable to step outside, while Indigenous people are able to. Aiden, adopted into a white family, is taken out on a voyage, exploring two possible perspectives. Karrabing Film Collective's most unnerving film is also its most stylistically experimental.
