'Aborigines tell their version of the brutal history of their people in the Kimberley region of WA, and their right to own pastoral stations without fear of interference by mining companies. The films culminates in the story of Noonkanbah, the pastoral property which was owned by non-Aborigines until the Federal Government purchased it five years after an Aboriginal walk off in 1971. The US company AMAX wanted to prospect for oil in sacred areas. The issue became a media game, and in 1980 the contractors moved in and started exploring and drilling on sacred ground.'
