Charlies and Glenni are in a bar, nearly broke and waiting for the car to be fixed. Glenni has an idea; she decides she will hustle some pool to make some money. During the game, Glennie overhears Charlie on the phone to the mysterious female stranger who he is pursuing. Angry at Charlie’s deception, Glenni takes a stand.

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
