||Young actor Breythe left Kalgoorlie dreaming of a dazzling career. Now he found himself starring in a controversial Australia Day ad that pays big, but draws the ire of his mob. Racism is subtle but persistent in an industry where directors request he darken up for authenticity and typecast him as tracker,drinker or thief. Returning home, Breythe just as alienated from country and lore. His cultural capital distances him from furious brother Mateo and activist sister Carina, all of them struggling with regret and responsibility after their father's death.
