Rusty, Zach, and Alfie are on a perilous course toward ‘juvey’ until they meet up with the rough talking, rule breaking jackaroo, Bernie Shakeshaft, and hit the road with his legendary dog jumping team. With the economic and social decline in rural Australia more young people are growing up in poverty. Disillusioned and neglected many of them drop out of school, caught up with drugs and crime. When everyone else gives up on troubled kids like Rusty, Zach, and Alfie they head to Backtrack. It’s a place where they can feel safe, continue their education, get job training, but most importantly to pursue their dreams. Made by one of Australia’s leading documentary filmmakers, this inspiring coming of age story follows the boys as they strive to turn their lives around – and the dogs that help tame their wild ways.
