Spear explores the problems Aboriginal men face in urban and remote communities, starting in childhood. Spiritual forces are represented by an Elder spirit from a traditional homeland, an urban spirit who has worked through so much that he is cleansed by his own efforts, and a new spirit in the body of a child.
This production features the First Nations language Yolngu Matha (North East Arnhem Land).
