Charlie's Country

Rated NR 108 min. 2015

Living in a remote Aboriginal community in the northern part of Australia, Charlie is a warrior past his prime. As the government increases its stranglehold over the community's traditional way of life, Charlie becomes lost between two cultures. His new modern life offers him a way to survive but, ultimately, it is one he has no power over. Finally fed up when his gun, his newly crafted spear and his best friend's jeep are confiscated, Charlie heads into the wild on his own, to live the old way. However Charlie hasn't reckoned on where he might end up, nor on how much life has changed since the old days.
