Cannes International Film Festival 2009 - Un Certain Regard

Samson, a cheeky 15-year-old boy, and Delilah live in an isolated Aboriginal community in the Central Australian desert. In amongst a tiny collection of houses, everything here happens in a cycle. Day in and day out, nothing changes, everything stays the same and no one seems to care. When tragedy strikes they turn their backs on home and embark on a journey of survival.
The two teenagers soon discover that life outside the community can be cruel. Though hungry and rejected, Samson and Delilah fall in love. It is all they have. It is real. Lost, unwanted and alone they discover that life isn’t always fair, but love never judges.
