Filmed over 10 years, the story of a Warlpiri woman, Audrey, and her journey with her Sicilian partner Santo to keep the children they’ve been bringing up together, despite the many challenges they face.
Audrey embeds her cultural knowledge, language, and Law in the lives of those she cares for, as well as ensuring they have the education for the complex world of today. The intimate footage of this steadfast couple, filmed over 10 years in Mbantua (Alice Springs) and Audrey’s Warlpiri homelands, provides unique insights into a family in Australia today.
