AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Dizzy Roundabout, a guitarist in an Aboriginal rock 'n' roll band, has criss-crossed the Australian continent for the past ten years scraping just enough money for the next gig. Accepting a national Music Industry Award in the absence of the lead singer, reportedly taken by a crocodile is just another day at the office. Torn between recording in Sydney and a woman at an outback roadhouse, Dizzy's life begins to come apart and he find himself stranded in a small town, until an elderly missionary steers him into a road that he's not traveled before.'
