Chaos reigns as nightmares stalk the streets of Sydney.
Comic genius David Argue is Kales Leadingham the cosmic surveyor with a sixth sense and Amanda Dole is the beautiful dingo girl intent on finding out why her parents tried to sacrifice her at Ayers Rock.  Brought up by dingos she's back in Bondi and she's pissed off.  This is a sweet new digitization.

Shot on location in north western NSW and features Bill Hunter in his earliest lead role, and Gary Foley, Koori political activist. An extraordinary cult hit.
