Corin Throsby returns to her homeland of Australia to explode the myth that it is an artistic backwater, revealing instead a vibrant and diverse cultural landscape. She begins by speaking to the likes of director Baz Luhrmann, actor Geoffrey Rush, singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett, and writers Christos Tsiolkas and Richard Flanagan. She also meets Maya Newell, director of the 2015 documentary Gayby Baby, which was banned in schools for supposedly promoting same-sex families.
