AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Anindilyakwa man, Steve 'BAKALA' Wurramara is afflicted with a profound hereditary neurodegenerative disorder. While modern medicine looks for answers, the stories of an ancient curse and black magic still permeate this remote Aboriginal community in Far Northern Australia. BAKALA enlists the help of his daughter to search for a cure from the traditional bush medicines in the land, desperate to find an answer before she too is diagnosed. As his desperation grows and his disorder takes an ever greater hold, BAKALA realises he must fight this ancient curse to unlock the secrets of his Ancestors.' (Production summary)
