In the Northern Territory of Australia, an extended Indigenous family attempts to track down a missing family member so as not to lose their government housing. As they move back and forth between the suburban ghetto where they live and a remote landscape where they are trying to establish an outstation, they run up against the everyday obstacles of structural and racialized poverty.
