Description by Ryko Distribution:

The highly explosive and equally funny story of Jimmie(Tommy Lewis) a young Australian half-cast Aborigine who is torn between his true Aboriginal roots and an impulsion to integrate himself into White Colonial society. As Jimmie grows into a hard working young man, he consistently finds himself flagrantly cheated and suppressed by his white employers, forcing him to some seek relief in love, which he finds in a white woman he marries under duress. However, as the pressure builds, Jimmie explodes, resulting in one of the darkest, most violent endings in movie history. Directed by Fred Schepisi(Roxanne, Six degrees of Separation) and based the book by Thomas Keneally (author of Schindler's List) which was inspired by true events.
