In a tiny desolate town, there is only one road in and out. A fair skinned, blue eyed teenage girl rejects the indigenous blood of her mother for the blood of her Irish father. A teenage indigenous boy spends all of his time in a plantation pine forest. Years of incarceration have molded a tough exterior and separated him from any love. The two find themselves together, alone, with no money and no transportation. Over a period of twenty-four hours, these two hardened souls come together and hitchhike on a lone highway to Sydney where they unwillingly affect their self-identity and inner feelings.
