Two young siblings are stranded in the Australian Outback and are forced to cope on their own. They meet an Australian boy on "walkabout": a ritual separation from his tribe.

The Girl: We're English! English, do you understand? This is Australia, yes? Where is Adelaide?
White Boy: Ask him for water!
White Boy: I don't suppose it matters which way we go.
The Girl: We'll stay here. Perhaps the water will come back.
White Boy: Where from?
The Girl: I expect we're the first white people he's seen.
The Girl: Put your shirt on.
White Boy: He hasn't got his shirt on!
The Girl: He hasn't got a shirt.
White Boy: He can have mine.
The Girl: It wouldn't fit him.
White Boy: Well, where are we now?
The Girl: Water. Drink. We want water to drink. You must understand! Anyone can understand that. We want to drink. I can't make it any simpler. Water. To drink. The water hole has dried up. Where do they keep the water?
The Girl: Please try. It's silly to give in now. It can't be much further.
