"Going home never felt so good."

It is the summer of 1969 and young Willie (Rocky McKenzie) is filled with an idyllic life in his hometown port of Broome, in the North of Western Australia. He spends his day fishing, hanging out with his friends, and when he can, his girlfriend Rosie (Jessica Mauboy).

However his mother Theresa (Ningali Lawford-Wolf) has great hopes for him and she insists he return to the religious mission in Perth for further schooling under the strict eye of Father Benedictus (Geoffrey Rush).
