Summary In this final episode of First Contact season two, the group finds themselves at the West Kimberley Regional Prison to experience what life is like in an Aboriginal prison. As night falls, they have a decision to make. A cell is available. Who in the group will take up the offering of joining the 10,000 Indigenous people locked up every night in Australia? In the morning, the group heads due east to the tiny town of Coen in far north Queensland, one of four communities to be part of a radical welfare reform experiment. They experience a controversial teaching technique that aims to close the education gap and get Aboriginal kids reading, writing and ultimately into work to escape the cycle of welfare dependency, and debate and opinions are stirred up again.
