An intimate, at times heart-wrenching, portrait of Dujuan, an Aboriginal boy who cannot reconcile his gift as a traditional healer and the history of his people with the whitefella system he is compelled to be part of. A self-described “bush kid”, he is disturbed by the history he is taught, the news he watches – specifically about Don Dale and other jails where young Aborigines are concentrated – and the pressures to behave in a certain way. Fun-loving, bright and serious at once, his spirit and self esteem are being crushed and he looks to be walking the well-worn trail from foster care to “juvie” to jail. We walk with him, share his dreams and hopes for his future self. The film was shot in Alice Springs and homelands in the Northern Territory in a three-year collaboration between the filmmakers, the family and Arrernte and Garrwa Elders.
