Nicolas Roeg's stunning debut as sole director makes breathtaking use of its Australian outback locations. When a teenage girl (Jenny Agutter) and her brother (the director's son Luc Roeg) are abandoned in the outback following their father’s suicide, they have to learn to fend for themselves in the natural world without recourse to their usual comforts. Along the way, they meet a young Aboriginal (David Gulpilil) on his 'walkabout', a rite of passage in which adolescent boys are initiated into manhood by journeying into the wilderness alone. What develops is a thwarted tale of love across cultural barriers and a haunting meditation on time and civilisation.
