Salt River Road

In the aftermath of their mother’s death, the Tetley siblings’ lives are falling apart. Left to fend for themselves as their family farm goes to ruins, Rose sets out to escape the grief and mess of home. When she meets Noongar Elders Patsy and Herbert, she finds herself drawn into a home where she has the chance to discover the strength of community and to heal a wound her family has carried for a generation. Salt River Road is a poignant exploration of healing and resilience, small-town racism, and the power of human connection.’This story retains innocence and a sense of decency even as it glides through pain, love, and complex politics. It’s refreshing and open, and kind of tricky.’ Kim Scott‘An amazing new talent.’ Brett D’Arcy
