Summary
Three Aboriginal Brothers, John, Harry and Ivan Watson, run the cattle station in the Kimberley where they were born and where they once worked under the brutal welfare system. They face drought, divided tribal loyalties, government bureaucracy, diamond mining companies and fundamentalist Christianinty while trying to keep traditional Aboriginal beliefs and customs alive for their children and future generations. Over the last 10 years a number of stations have been bought back for Aboriginal communities with money from the Aboriginal Development Commission. One such station is Mt Anderson station, totally run-down when the Watsons returned but now being restored to its former productivity
