Yirrawala, a great Aboriginal painter, takes his sons, who have grown up in the white man’s world, back into Arnhem Land in an attempt to find sacred caves and aboriginal art. During the journey, Yirrawala makes a bark painting in the traditional way and he shows us cave paintings never before recorded.
