Jackaroo (2015)

The sheep or cattle station jackaroos have been an essential part of Australian outback life since colonial times.   This tough life is represented here by pitting a lone Aboriginal jackaroo against the great and arid spaces of the outback. Not a life for the timid or weak.  These days Jack and Jillaroos are generally trained in a kinder school.
