In Prospect Bay, a remote outpost on the South Australian coast, two communities, the Goonyas (whites) and the Nungas (blacks), come together on the one field they have in common, the football field.

It is great to see a film that comments on contemporary relations between Black and White Australia - Showing faults on both sides.
