Summary It's been a hell of a ride for BMX superstar Khalen Young. Khalen grew up in a poor WA neighbourhood and moved to the US at the age of 20 to pursue his dream of making it in BMX. He has been faced with a lot of tough challenges and choices along the way, including whether to compete at the Olympics or be there for the birth of his child. He chose the latter. Four years later, Khalen gets a second chance when he qualifies for the London Olympics. Leading the pack he looks set for victory. Then in spectacular fashion it's all comes crashing down. Away From Country captures the essence of Indigenous excellence on and off the sporting field and highlights the journeys of our Indigenous sportspeople. It captures the pursuit of dreams and looks at how the athletes cope with being away from Country; maintain their connection to land and community; and how they harness this to further their careers.
