Djalu Gurruwiwi is an aging Yolngu elder in a line 60,000 years long who is running out of time to pass on the Yidaki Songlines entrusted to him for the future of his people before the Songlines die with him. His sons and community, struggling to come to terms with the consequences of colonisation, are lost. When Djalu breaks with tradition in order to try and save it, world famous musician Gotye becomes an unexpected family member, helps heal Djalu’s sons and amplifies his songs to the world. But Djalu - a warrior, aboriginal elder and father must find a way to bring two worlds together to save his sons and his culture.
