In 1960, Agnes Coe (Nin) learned of the death of her brother Milton, an Aboriginal man, in a mine in South Australia, but the story has always been based on loose facts and unanswered questions.

It was rumoured that Milton had been killed by a local police officer after he started a relationship with the man's white daughter.

In 2009, Milton's great niece, filmmaker Mary Munro, makes the journey to South Australia in a search for answers.
