AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Central Australia, 1901. Constable Peterson (Konrad Matthaei) is dispatched from Melbourne to arrest an Arunta (Arrernte) man (Kamahl) responsible for a ritual killing in Central Australia. Local commander Sergeant Miller (Ronald Morse) orders police tracker Jubbal (Ed Devereaux) to accompany Peterson on the trek into Arrernte territory. When the Arrernte chief (Nukitjilpi) refuses to accept Peterson’s demand, the wanted man gives himself up. Jubbal dies on the return journey, leaving Peterson stranded in the desert with the prisoner, and Arrernte men on his trail.'
