Samson and Delilah's world is small - an isolated community in the Central Australian desert. When tragedy strikes they turn their backs on home and embark on a journey of survival. Lost, unwanted and alone they discover that life isn't always fair, but love never judges.

This is a film that takes the viewer into a world not often seen in the cinema. Its a tale of a relationship blossoming in the harshest surroundings a million miles away from Hollywood romances and all the better for it. The film uses sound, music and visual feeling more than words to tell its story and captivated me from the start.
No big actors or big action but plenty of real feeling. It travels at its own pace and uses its own style to bring to life the lives of people who are usually forgotten by the outside world.
loved the pace of this film. and real people rather than trained actors. the music, which I loved, is all part of the story, we hear what they hear, no irrelevant background music is used. very sad, but showing life of the indigenous Australians whose land has been taken from them. we don't see this side in most films.
also liked the other short films by same director on the disc, giving a taste of this directors work.
