Billy’s an Aboriginal boy from the bush. He’s been chosen by the spirit of his mother to travel to where the whitefellas live, to find some girls and a future for his clan, or face extinction. The problem is, he’s never even seen a girl before and he doesn’t want to go. So his mum calls upon the forces of nature to bring on his Tribal Scarring ceremony, to unleash the warrior within.Sometimes you’ve just gotta grow up.With his mothers guiding spirit, Billy sets off on his walkabout where he comes across Amber, cowering in a back alley in the city of Sydney. She’s cold, wet, upset and wearing a bloodied pair of pink pyjamas. He’s mesmerized by her beautiful blue eyes and she falls for his infectiously happy smile. They form a firm friendship and rather than scrounge in bins for food, they use their combined hunting and cooking skills to feed off fat rats and brandied pigeons. They fight off those that would do them harm, save the lives of those that have nothing, and build a wonderfully colourful community around themselves.Billy and Amber’s adventures and misadventures will have you laughing your head off, crying your eyes out and wishing you could join them.
