Synopsis
Amidst the vast emptiness of an unending plain, a stressed-out Australian urbanite interrupts his family's Outback picnic to kill himself and blow up their car, leaving his teenage daughter and young son... alone. Thus begins a memorable emotional and physical odyssey for a girl just old enough to take matters in her own, very proper hands -- and for her little brother, zestfully plunging into what seems to him a game. But it's no game for the third member of the eventual trio: an Aborigine boy on his coming-of-age "walkabout."
