"They've been through so much and yet there is something that ties them inextricably together." Liz Butler, Sally Dingo's sister.
When Sally Butler met Ernie Dingo, it was the beginning of a unique bond that would bridge two very different cultures.
Against advice, the couple married - and Sally embraced her husband's complex, extended Indigenous family. Meanwhile, Ernie defied the stereotypes to become one of Australia's most famous celebrities. Already a popular film and television star, he became a household name as the host of The Great Outdoors.
But Sally had a private heartache. She had been told she was unable to have children. Then fate intervened, and Sally and Ernie became the parents of two children - a son Jurra, and a daughter Wilara. But little did the couple realise the bonds in place that already connected them.
It seemed on the surface a perfect union. But just two years ago, Ernie's celebrity came crashing down in a media storm that would cost far more than his celebrity career.
This is the story of an unconventional family - its resilience in the face of unlikely odds, and of the capacity for love to triumph amongst adversity. (Source: http://www.abc.net.au/tv/familyconfidential/pages/s3384060.htm )
