The movie also stars Adam Driver (HBO's Girls), and it comes from director John Curran (The Painted Veil, We Don't Live Here Anymore). Here's a detailed synopsis of the story,
Tracks is based on the inspirational and iconic true story of Robyn Davidson. Robyn's phenomenal solo trek from Alice Springs to Uluru and on to the Indian Ocean saw her traverse 2700km of spectacular yet unforgiving Australian desert accompanied only
