En 1964, Yuwali avait 17 ans et son groupe, composé de 20 femmes et enfants, furent les derniers aborigènes à vivre traditionnellement, ignorant totalement l’Australie moderne. Avant de procéder à des essais de lancements de fusées, la gendarmerie fut envoyée pour les évacuer de leur habitat du désert. Yuwali fait un récit fascinant de sa course sur des centaines de kilomètres pour échapper aux "démons" dans des "roches qui se déplacent" (camions). Aujourd’hui à 62 ans, elle raconte son incroyable histoire.
