From Darkness Whence We Came by Steven Oliver

with Roxanne MacDonald, Bjorn Stewart, Brianna Randall, Ilai Swindells, and Paula Nazarski

The year is 2016 and a middle class nuclear Indigenous family, complete with one elder, live an unremarkable life in the Australian suburbs. That is, except for the occasional visit from spirits. Unable to communicate with them, the only thing they know for sure is that the spirits are drawn to the teenaged son of the family and that their visits, through dreams, have become more frequent. Things take a turn when the spirits’ teaching are revealed: time travel. However, the son is the only one who is permitted to travel and only to the past.

The family toy with the idea of thwarting Captain Cook’s landing to prevent the suffering of their people, but there are just two problems; they will cease to exist and it’s forbidden. Is this a test? Do they actually want him to go? Will he?
