Five First Nations community members in Australia try to imagine what a hypothetical treaty would look like if it had been signed in 1778. Desiring sovereignty of the land and laws, they speculate a different history and future with more cultural understanding.


Daniel King (Yuin) is an Indigenous Australian freelance filmmaker, starting in film lighting in 1999 where he worked professionally for seven years. Daniel has since made numerous documentaries for T.V. both nationally and internationally.
