Sacred Site


Anthropologist Esther King is working with the
Tjulpan Aboriginal community in Western Australia.
A mining company discovers gold under a sacred site nearby, but accessing the gold means destroying the site. Esther determines to save it, especially when she learns that a massacre of Aboriginal people occurred there. As Esther probes Tjulpan’s secrets and history, she uncovers blackmail, abuse and deceit. She is threatened and her colleagues are attacked. A Tjulpan woman who confides in Esther that child abuse is endemic is murdered. Undeterred, her investigations lead to a showdown in the outback where Esther is left fighting for her life.
