Charlie (Wayne Munro) is in the shop. His head is turned by a stranger from the city. Charlie is getting served when he notices the stranger has dropped her wallet. Charlie rings the stranger with the intention of returning her wallet and scoring a date.

Summary by Romaine Moreton

A romantic comedy by Sam Saunders, Turn Around tells of the fantasy of a young man named Charlie (Wayne Munro) who goes to the city in pursuit of a woman he has met just once. Samantha Saunders refers to her film as a ‘girl fantasy’ and it is refreshing to have an all-Indigenous cast in a romantic comedy.

Other films in the AFC Indigenous Branch drama initiative Dreaming in Motion are Black TalkFlatMimi and Shit Skin (all 2002).

Turn Around Synopsis

A romantic comedy about a young man who fantasises about a liaison with a stranger, yet fails to see the real woman before him.
