The Tracker (Bradley Byquar) leaves the hut and ventures into the bushland. He climbs a rock face, and we see that it is an ancient art gallery, depicting the ochre-crusted handprints of many people. The Tracker places his hand against one of the ochre prints. The old Aboriginal man (Steve Dodd) sits on the cliff face, a tear rolls down his cheek. Tracker, steadying his hand against the rock face is disturbed by a sudden gust of wind.
A scene that deals with the conflict of the Indigenous tracker, who in working for the colonial forces, is pitted against his culture and traditions. The old Aboriginal man who sheds a tear represents a poignant moment in a film where the key emotional moments occur quietly. In that moment we witness the realisation by the older Indigenous man that he is at war with the Tracker, the only other Indigenous character in the film.
