Beneath Clouds | 2002
Lena is a light-skinned daughter of an Aboriginal mother and Irish father. Vaughn is a Murri boy doing time in a minimum security prison. Vaughn and Lena meet on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere. Neither of them have any money and both are hoping that a passing car will give them a lift. Each of them sees the other as the embodiment of that part of their lives from which they are so desperately trying to escape. Grad-ually, however, Lena begins to draw in her horns and even Vaughn starts to lower his defences.
