Charlie (Gulpilil) lives in a remote Aboriginal community in northern Australia, where government intervention in the culture's traditional way of life has left many of the residents, Charlie included, feeling powerless to control their destinies. When his gun and hand-crafted spear are confiscated, leaving him nothing to hunt with, Charlie defiantly heads into the bush to live the old way. Battling both the elements and his own aging body, Charlie is eventually forced back to the community and, later, to the provincial capital of Darwin. What he finds there proves to be just the beginning of a long road back home.
