Filmed at, and in, Jurndawurrunha—a natural freshwater spring sacred to the Yindjibarndi people of the Pilbara region—the work considers, through poetry of filmic means, introduced ground and underwater flora as a form of colonisation and how contemporary conservation efforts can restore the equilibrium.
