In the remote wetlands of the Northern Territory, white shooters relied upon local Aboriginal labour to hunt the feral buffalo and export their hides. As a result, the lives of certain Aboriginal people came to revolve around the buffalo industry. This film looks at the varied relationships this produced, and the lasting effects of the buffalo upon people and the land.
