Synopsis:
Based on the early 20th-century exploits of Jimmy Governor, Jimmie Blacksmith (Tommy Lewis) follows its title character, a half-Aboriginal, half-white young man attempting to make his way as a farmhand, but facing only prejudice and deception from society. When the parentage of his child is called into question and he is further robbed by his white employers, Jimmie's barely suppressed rage explodes, triggering a wave of violence that would shock a nation.
