Go For Broke

Palm Island is a tropical paradise in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. But for almost a century it was a dumping ground for Aboriginal Australians removed from their tribal lands and forced into hard labor. After gaining independence in the 1970’s, the island descended into lawlessness, eventually being labelled “the most dangerous place on earth outside of a warzone” by Guinness World Records. Now local elder Dulcie wants to stage a play about a famous strike on the island in 1957. Dulcie’s dream is that the community take the strike into their hearts and unite to celebrate this historic moment in black history and, most importantly, that the next generation carry on the fight for justice and freedom. But there are a lot of ghosts and trouble is never far away.
