Ex­u­ber­ant, orig­i­nal and some­times strays into kitsch, but this mu­si­cal com­edy is harm­less fun. It’s the late 1960s in Broome and 16-yearold Wil­lie ( Rocky Mcken­zie) is liv­ing in an Abo­rig­i­nal com­mu­nity and has a bud­ding ro­mance with Rosie (Jes­sica Mauboy). But then Wil­lie’s mum packs him off to an op­pres­sive board­ing school in Perth. Billy ditches school and finds some un­likely friends and foes on his long road trip home.
