Just outside the town of Wyndham, in the northern Kimberley region of Western Australia, young Pete lives with his grandfather in an old abandoned outdoor cinema in the desert. When the old drive-in is threatened with demolition, ten year old Pete takes off to the city with his best mate Kalmain, to save his home. But the boys get lost in the Australian outback. Starving and thirsty, Pete has to remember some of the old bush skills his grandfather taught him to survive. Finally Pete and Kalmain reach the city, they save the old cinema and return home as heroes.
