Located on the border between Queensland and NSW, Toomelah is an Aboriginal community where 10-year-old Daniel is growing up the hard way. He lives with his mother and grandmother, while his father, an ex-boxer and meth addict, seems to have no roof over his head at all. Filmed on location using a cast of mainly non-professional actors, Toomelah is a powerful and disturbing view of Aboriginal outback life, a place where there seems to be no employment, no future and very little in the way of love. -  ABC
