A set of identical twin Aboriginal girls separated at birth accidentally meet up 15 years later in Alice Springs. Yuma has been brought up in the bright lights of Sydney with her European-Australian father, and Kyanna has grown up in a remote traditional Aboriginal community in Central Australia with her mother. They concoct a scheme to switch places in order to meet their other family, and when Yuma's father decides to leave early, Kyanna gets taken back to Sydney as Yuma, and Yuma stays in Alice Springs as Kyanna. However, due to their desire to protect their mother from an Aboriginal stigma associated with women who give birth to twins, the girls decide not to reveal to their respective families and communities who they really are, and devise a way to swap back to their original families.
