Hairy! Come on!
Hands on your head!
Must have been to the CA! Hands on your head!
MUSIC: Take Me Home by AB Original feat. Gurrumul
-Hey, hey, hey.
-It's OK, it's OK, it's OK, you're fine.
-You're fine. The baby's fine.
-Have you run any tests?
-Nobody's run anything.
I checked your vitals and hid you away in here.
Kept everybody else at arm's length.
Including your husband.
I can't go home.
Well, there's no rush.
No, I mean, I can't go home.
It's not safe.
MOBILE PHONE VIBRATES
Charlotte, can we talk?
Give me a chance to apologise.
I hate arguing with you.
Are we ready to go if we need to?
We're prepped for foetal extraction.
This group is being set up to mimic a subhuman womb.
The foetus will continue to develop normally?
Exactly as if it were in a healthy mother.
No danger to the mother with this procedure?
Any surgical intervention carries a certain risk.
But the risk is not significantly greater here.
Ah, you hear that, boy?
-It's killing me.
-Means the past is reaching out to you.
Trying to show you something.
It's tied to this land, boy.
And connecting to it will make you stronger.
Could you tell the past to be a little bit quieter?
It'll stop when you're strong enough to go home, boy.
Now, drink this.
You'll get a warm tingly feeling in your mouth, but it'll go away soon.
-Hello, Aunty. You don't mind if we film, eh?
-Of course, dear.
So just you today, or is your family here?
You from around here?
My people have always lived on this land.
Moved out West when the boats came.
Your mob stayed out there?
Most of them.
Can't be jumping around, hiding all the time.
Too old for that these days.
21's not that old. SHE LAUGHS
Smooth talker, aren't you?
Are you comfortable with the procedure?
They said the blue stuff goes in, and the green comes out.
-Sounds simple enough.
-Simpler than what's going on out there.
You must've seen a lot in your time.
The thing I remember the most was this little human girl.
My family told me never to make contact with the humans.
But I used to watch them, whenever I got the chance.
She had long curly hair, she was wearing the most beautiful dress.
That dress was the whitest thing you've ever seen.
And it had a blue ribbon wrapped around her, like a belt.
Well, you don't see much of those dresses any more, Aunty.
MAN SPEAKS IN OWN LANGUAGE
MAN'S VOICE ECHOES
MAN SHOUTS AGGRESSIVELY
SHE POURS WATER
-Hey, what do you think you're doing?
She's already had water today.
Well, she'll learn the rules.
Just because Koen wants her here,
doesn't mean she gets special privileges.
Watch yourself. My boy's just looking after people.
Come on, girl, come with me.
Are you happy?
Crashing with these mob?
I saw your son.
At the warehouse.
The blue light thing coming from his chest,
smashing through steel like it was nothing.
Can you do it, too?
You can lie here if you want.
What are you looking at?
-Yeah, no kidding.
Everything's gone to shit.
Genocide is what's happening, and my husband's in the middle of it.
Maybe he doesn't have a choice.
There's always a choice.
Why are you helping us?
Because you're decent people.
-She's just like anybody else, as far as I can see.
Very few people see Hairies that way.
Well, most have never met one,
at least that they knew was a Hairy.
I mean, that's why the government's been so successful in
stirring things up.
there are some decent people in this city,
-and there is hope in that.
-We need way more than hope.
Well...you need the Piazza home run.
New York Mets? Baseball player?
Ten days since 9/11, and the New York Mets are playing the Braves.
The Mets are down 2-1, heading into the bottom of the eighth.
Then Piazza steps up.
The people were screaming out for something to smile about.
He steps into the box, he watches the first pitch.
He waits for the second pitch, bam! He smashes that ball.
It flies high, it's going...
-Gone. Out of the ballpark.
Even the losing team couldn't help but smile.
And the crowd, it goes wild.
It's going to take more than a sports star to change this place.
But it only takes one person to show others there's something worth being
From Mr West.
OK, no smiling for the photos. This is for your ID.
Come on, no smiling and we'll all be done.
OK, good. Hold it.
Bye-bye, Yani, and hello to Gwen.
It's a beautiful name they've chosen for you.
My name is Gwen.
Trev, make sure you unpack that other truck.
And mop the floors when you're done.
-Put your back into it, Trev.
-Come on, Trev, today.
Trevor, I want you to peel some carrots, inside.
-Palm print and hand recognition scanning.
This is Trevor. Would you mind having a couple of words with us?
We were hoping that you might be able to tell us how it's been,
settling into Bennelong House.
-Are you on your way home from work?
So, before this city went to hell, what did you do for work?
-What do you do?
-I'm a security guard.
-I was once.
-And that's it?
-Now I do security.
So you left the police force because...?
Well, when all the new security measures were brought in by the
government, hundreds of police were redeployed,
whether we liked it or not.
If we objected, we lost all our entitlements and any other chance of
I got security.
Come on, then, I'm going to beat your Hairy arse.
-Is that your bishop?
I could've sworn it was your knight before.
You going to argue with an old lady?
-This is Trevor.
Would you mind having a few words with us, Trevor?
Can you tell us how it feels now to be...?
Trevor, can we have an interview, please?
So you are the first subhuman to be recruited...
..hopes, beliefs and loyalty, that are the very things that make us
human, that set us apart from the animals.
There's only two good things about the curfew.
City's dead quiet.
No cars, no sirens,
The second thing is,
all the city lights are out,
so you can finally see the stars.
Makes me feel like I'm back on country.
You see that big emu up there?
Just there, running full pelt.
All I see is the Milky Way and the Southern Cross.
You've got to look at the dark clouds,
not the stars.
All I see is stars.
You're powerful, boy.
Doesn't feel like it.
Don't have accuracy when I use the blue blast thing.
It's not a weapon.
It works like a weapon.
It's a power not to be messed with, boy.
Anyone who's caught in its blast,
can no longer move on from this life.
So, what, they become immortal?
They lose their essence.
HE SPEAKS ABORIGINAL PHRASE
Their soul? JIMMY REPEATS PHRASE
Once they die, that's it.
They can't join their ancestors, they don't move on,
they simply cease to exist.
So there's no trace of them left?
They've been obliterated.
What's the point in having this gift
if you can't use it the way you need to?
Stop forcing things.
Allow the powers to come through.
You can't go out there.
I'm going to Bennelong House.
The place will be swarming with security.
-You won't get anywhere near your husband.
I know Waruu.
He knows your people.
He'll make it impossible.
How do you know that?
He's my son.
Koen and Waruu.
Does that make you feel better?
It doesn't help me at all.
I'm just letting you know what you're up against.
I know what I'm up against.
Ignorance, fear, hatred.
There's none of that here.
And you need to remember who you're talking to.
Yes, the mother who shaped those two sons.
I'm not proud.
You can drive me to Bennelong House.
-You owe me.
I am not my son.
Take me to Bennelong House!
I'll do it.
-Why should I trust you?
-Because I'm the only one in this place who has
-I'm glad we could help.
-It's very impressive.
I'm a fast learner, Minister.
Don't be so modest.
Ever since the announcement, we've had a large number of Hairies come
-forward for the initiative.
-Well, you're making us both look good.
I'd call that a win-win, wouldn't you?
That's exactly what I'd call it.
Well, there's been some pushback, of course.
People worry that we're exacerbating the problem by making Hairies
-We're making them practically human,
-negating the threat.
-Subhumans were merely a myth a year ago.
What else is out there?
Get away from him!
This is footage of an attack on some civilians a few days ago.
I need to know who or what that is.
Absolutely, Minister. I'll get right onto it.
VOICEOVER: Two hunters would travel far from the camp
to collect food for their family.
The older hunter would always bring more back.
This was because he had a special boomerang.
His was much faster and would never miss.
The younger hunter asked the old
people where he could get a boomerang like this.
The old people told him of a special tree,
so the younger hunter headed out to
cut himself a stronger and much larger boomerang.
But the younger hunter did not
notice that the tree's blood ran hot and poured like lava.
It was the blood that made the
older hunter's boomerang so powerful.
It would cut through his prey, killing them instantly.
I haven't seen you in such a good mood in ages.
You got laid, didn't you?
All right, just pull up over here, OK?
We've got sections 95, 96, and 97 to do today.
Come on, focus.
So where did you guys meet?
I said legit, man, you got to drop it.
You are giving me nothing.
And it will remain that way.
Hey, heads up.
Now, what you do in your own time is up to you.
I'm interested in the guy in the hoodie.
Him I don't know. He was just there with a Subbie.
Drives a red minivan, had a woman with him.
Last numbers on the plate were something like 971.
So where's your boyfriend?
You don't know anything about him.
What are you doing?
Grab your stuff.
Culture is difficult to control,
and being a Cleverman forces you to be consumed by it.
-Ah, you listen to the voices in your head.
Some people think that you're crazy.
The more they say it, the more you believe it,
and you find yourself in a dark place where no words can help you.
If you couldn't handle everything, what makes you think I can?
Well, you've been dealing with this your whole life -
people talking about you, putting you down, "The whore's child."
But it's moulded you, shaped you for this role.
You're ready for this.
It's still me.
I thought I'd never see you again.
I'm here to take you home.
There is no home.
We're going to leave the city.
We've done it before, remember?
Latani and Djukara?
Oh... Oh, my boy.
I told him to be calm.
Shh. Latani, there's Latani.
We need to find her.
But you're safe.
When you look like me...
..the CA don't shoot.
They prefer to pretend that I'm not here.
You are here.
If you give me your keys and a list of things you need,
I'm happy to go get them.
I can't ask you to do that.
It's fine. I better go.
You're really scared of him, aren't you?
I can't say.
Might make you less scared if you talk about it.
Hey. Won't go any further than this room.
I'm sorry. I just can't.
You don't have to protect him, you know.
Why are you sitting here in the dark?
Are you all right?
What can I get you?
My DNA comes up as positive for subhuman.
Why is that?
My darling, we're having a baby, just like we dreamed of.
-Oh, my God.
-It's going to be the
healthiest child that's ever been born.
-You did this?
-For us - I did it for us.
-Don't touch me!
-Look, I know this is a shock, but once you...
You implanted something in me without my knowledge,
something not human.
And that clinic, the doctors?
How many people, Jarrod?
How many people know what I'm carrying?
No-one else knows - just you, me, and our doctor.
-You can trust him, I promise you.
You did this to your wife!
So that we can raise our child together.
We can be an example to those that come after.
When were you going to tell me? What, after it was born?
I wanted to tell you, believe me, but you were so happy.
I... I didn't want to confuse you.
I didn't know how you'd react.
Can I carry this baby safely to term?
How long is the term?
Do you know? Do you know any of that?
Or is it just cross your fingers and hope for the best?
And you say that you love me!
I wouldn't do this unless I was sure it was safe.
I'd never hurt you.
You're experimenting on me!
You're risking my life!
You'll be safe, I promise you.
All right, show me, then.
-I said show me.
I want to see everything.
Oh, my God!
Please don't hurt me!
My child's a Hairy!
You can't fix the situation.
Learn from it.
You knew, didn't you?
-Take it easy.
-Did she kill them?
Answer me! Did Linda kill my parents?
Yeah, she did.
Well done, little brother.
You finally figured it out.
Linda's never been the woman you thought she was.
She knew exactly what she was doing when she rammed their car.
She was after you, too.
The unborn child of the woman sleeping with her husband.
Sheer luck you're still here.
I'm getting a drink.
You lied to me all my life.
I know why you came here.
There's only one person in the world who knows how you feel right now.
Nothing changes that.
Is that why you sold me to Slade?
And then abandoned your family,
all of us, to the CA?
Why'd you do it?
I was lost.
Made a mistake.
Look at this place.
This is my place.
Waruu begins accepting volunteers for his new procedure to reintegrate Hairies into society. It involves completely changing their DNA, removing all their hair and wiping out all traces of their heritage, but he still has plenty of willing volunteers who are tired of forever hiding and being beaten by the authorities. Boondee becomes the public face of the process, having been forcibly subjected to it, and is released back into the community.
Charlotte leaves Jarrod for safety when she finally discovers the horrifying truth about what he has done to her. Meanwhile Nerida, Latani and Alinta are still in hiding in Tim's house, but even as Nerida and Tim begin to trust each other, Alinta makes a discovery that puts them all in danger.
Outside the city, the mysterious Jarli of the hidden Bindawu tribe continues his plans for resistance at all costs against the hated huimans, or skins. And Koen is still in hiding in the forest gathering his powers with Uncle Jimmy, learning the secrets of the Cleverman, when he makes a discovery about his past which leads to a brutal showdown with Waruu.
