Essie Coffey's first film, My Survival as an Aboriginal is now a classic. It introduced us to the life of her family and her community in far northwest New South Wales. Essie's second film returns to her home in Dodge City fifteen years later. There Essie and the A-Team are nominating for the local Shire elections. Intercutting between 1993 and the same people and places of the past as documented in My Survival as an Aboriginal, Essie shows us that some things have changed, but some have stayed the same.
