The uncomfortable truth of racism embedded within 1960s Australian society, set against the backdrop of the Freedom Ride.
Australia 1965. Racial tensions around the country are flaring, and the town of Walgaree is no exception. Robbie just wants to keep his head down, concentrate on his summer mowing job and avoid the wrath of his intolerant family. After all, there's nothing he can do about how the Aborigines are treated. He's only one person.
But when a group of university students arrive in Walgaree with the Freedom Ride, Robbie realises it's time to make a stand. Will he blow up everything he holds dear to change things for the better?
Freedom Ride is a thought-provoking reminder of the past, especially powerful when the Uluru Statement from the Heart calls for a future in which all Australians walk together.
