Genre: Adventure, Drama. Dir: Nicolas Roeg.
Under the pretence of having a picnic, a geologist (John Meillon) takes his teenage daughter (Jenny Agutter) and 6-year-old son (Lucien John) into the Australian outback and attempts to shoot them.
When he fails, he turns the gun on himself, and the two city-bred children must contend with harsh wilderness alone.
They are saved by a chance encounter with an Aboriginal teenager (David Gulpilil) who shows them how to survive, and in the process underscores the disharmony between nature and modern life.
