Synopsis
An examination of the relationship between white and Aboriginal Australia through the trial of five Aborigines accused of killing another. Corporate tax lawyer David Burton accepts the case just as torrential rains blanket even the most arid regions of the nation, and is instantly beset with prophetic dreams and apocalyptic visions. Convinced of an underground tribal society in Sydney whose existence could exonerate his clients, he unearths information to support this theory, but raises questions of an age-old link between the Sydney tribe and his own family--a link that could leave Australia buried underwater as fulfillment of an ancient prophecy.
