In the early 1800’s, a young Wongkatha girl reluctantly leaves her mother and crosses the Australian desert with her betrothed husband from another tribe. Along the way she encounters a white man for the first time, a postman lost in the desert. She finds solace in the comfort of one of his letters that she believes is a magical totem.
