Contents
Tom 'Putuparri' Lawford's people have lived in the desert of Western Australia for over forty thousand years. They lived a nomadic life knowing they could always retreat to their sacred waterholes when times were hard. Kurtal is one of the most important of these waterholes in the heart of the Great Sandy Desert. It is the site where underground artisan water known as 'jila' or 'living water' comes to the surface and it is where the spirits of Putuparri's people return to when they die. The film spans twenty transformative years in Putuparri's life as he navigates the deep chasm between his Western upbringing and his traditional culture. He and Spider go on a series of epic journeys to their family's country. Each trip marks a different stage in his passage from rebellious young man to inspirational leader
