Arguably one of Australia’s greatest actors, David Gulpilil began cowriting this partially autobiographical work while in gaol. It follows Charlie’s return to his country and a world that is increasingly no longer his. “Equal parts ethnographic and poetic, this eloquent drama's stirring soulfulness is laced with the sorrow of cultural dislocation but also with lovely ripples of humour and even joy.” It also poignantly captures moments in Gulpili’s remarkable career, which began as a teen in Nicholas’ Roeg’s masterpiece Walkabout.
