Jackson (Kyle Lynch) has a knack for telling stories. Stuck on a bus with two curious kids, he uses his beat up journal to bring to life the daring adventures of his war hero grandfather, Jim (Aubrey Lynch). Saving ungrateful fellow soldiers and eventually winning their friendship and respect, Jim is everything a warrior should be. But when Jim is betrayed, Jackson takes matters into his own hands.
From the harsh deserts of North Africa to the Goldfields of Western Australia, Wongi Warrior represents a ground-breaking collaboration between independent film-makers and Indigenous community elders to give a voice to the stories of their land. There are no easy lives, yet even the most challenging stories need to be told, for it is in the telling that there is healing.
