Summary
After 40 years in exile, Yulparija elders take Daniel Walbidi, their most promising young artist, back to the desert heartland they left behind. In the remote Aboriginal community of Bidyadanga a new art movement has emerged. At its helm is a young Aboriginal man who is well on the way to international fame and possible fortune. Daniel Walbidi paints the desert country that his parents walked out of 40 years ago. Now, with the rock holes, sandhills and salt lakes of their country revitalized through the creation of the paintings, they are determined to go back and show Daniel their desert country for the first time. Last dry season, the artists and their helpers headed out, a motley travelling group of 25, accompanied by the documentary filmmakers of the inland, David Batty and Jeni McMahon, who record the journey to their Desert Heart.
