AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A middle class nuclear Indigenous family, complete with Elder, live an unremarkable life in the Australian suburbs — apart from the occasional visit from spirits, the Birilungs. Unable to communicate with them, the only thing the family knows is that the Birilungs are now visiting 17-year-old Preston. When he finally reveals the spirits’ plans, the family must grapple with a new kind of future.'
