If you want to be borne away to a totally different time and place, then come and hear an Aboriginal tell a story his ancestors have been telling since the world was young. How Ridjmivaril lost his wife, the sorcery, the war party, revenge, pay back, and how his brother Dayindi finally got what his heart most desired. The first ever Aboriginal-language film is playful, stylish and fantastically beautiful.
