Summary Presents the remarkable story of Stuart and Valerie Ankin, two Aboriginal elders who set out to save their community from cultural extinction by integrating traditional knowledge with contemporary scientific expertise. They invited scientists and marketing experts to help them develop natural resources commercially while ensuring all products were developed sustainably. This documentary shows how they harvested and marketed medicines, plants and seeds, fruit juices and other organic products, as well as crocodile eggs and baby turtles, which led to an economic revitalization of the North Coast that encouraged many Aborigines to return to their ancestral lands.
