About The Tracker
When a white woman is murdered in 1920s Australia, a police officer (Gary Sweet) ventures into the Outback with a small crew in search of the Aboriginal fugitive (Noel Wilton) accused of the crime. In his group are a newcomer to the country (Damon Gameau), an old sage (Grant Page), and an Indigenous tracker (David Gulpilil) who is not fully trusted by the racially prejudiced officer. As the pursuit through this dangerous territory drags on, tensions begin to rise between the crew members. [98 min; drama, western; English]
