Film

Episode of Series “Frontiers downunder”.
Country outcasts is a small pop band made up from a number of talented Aborigines who have spent their lives in a wholly urbanised environment. This film is the story of a tour that this band makes through the outback, and the thoughts and feelings that are aroused within these city dwellers when they meet their trivialised brothers in Central Australia.
