Bran Nue Dae takes place in an idyllic port town on Australia's west coast in the summer of 1969, where carefree 16-year-old Willie (Rocky McKenzie) enjoys hanging out with his pals and wooing a beautiful singer named Rosie (Jessica Mauboy) -- until his mom ships him back to a Catholic boarding school in Perth. An act of rebellion soon triggers a wild homebound journey for our young hero in this energetic adaptation of the beloved Australian stage musical from 1989.
