The group arrives on Elcho Island where around 2,500 Aboriginal people live in some of the most deprived conditions in the western world. The six are shocked but in amongst the helplessness, there’s hope. Next in Alice Springs, Ray Martin directs the travelers to join a night patrol service which helps the drunk and vulnerable. It’s not long before tempers flare. Emotions are then pushed to the limit as the group meet women struggling with addiction and share their own life traumas. For one of the six, the journey into Aboriginal Australia becomes all too much to take… Next stop is the Pilbara where a very different side of the mining business will be revealed.
