Community clip
Clip from Yolngu Boy  |  NITV  |  March 30, 2013

Botj watches Milika and Lorrpu's ceremony into manhood. Afterwards, he goes to see his estranged mother. The next day, envious of Milika and Lorrpu, Botj pressures them into breaking into the local store. Botj gets into a fight with Lorrpu. Feeling isolated and angry, Botj decides to get high. Memories of Bäru (crocodile) initiation and anxieties about his future flash through his mind and he spins out of control, trashing the Youth Centre.
