Footy: The La Perouse Way is the story of a small Aboriginal community located in bustling multicultural Sydney.

It is the journey of a community, whose beginnings were marked by racial division and the suffering it brought. It is about that community embracing football as a starting point to put these historic differences behind it, and forging what has now become a unique and prosperous mix of black and white cultures. Cultures that are working together side-by-side in all aspects of life, with respect, honour, integrity and trust.
