A smorgasbord of Australian talent! In this lively musical comedy-drama set in the late 1960s, Willie is a sixteen-year-old Aboriginal boy living in Broome. Willie is an easy-going kid who doesn't ask for much from life beyond enjoying time with his friends and getting a date with Rosie (Jessica Mauboy).
But Willie's mother thinks he should be following a more responsible path, and convinces him to transfer to a Catholic boarding school for boys in Perth. It doesn't take long for Willie to run afoul of Father Benedictus (Geoffrey Rush), the school's iron-willed headmaster, and Willie runs away.
Stranded in Perth, Willie is befriended by Uncle Tadpole (Ernie Dingo), a streetwise character who lived in Broome as a youngster. Uncle Tadpole offers to help Willie get back home but as they hit the highway, Father Benedictus is in hot pursuit, determined not to let a truant slip from his grasp.
