When Abraham arrived in Australia he knew two words in English, 'yes' and 'no', and he consistently confused the two of them. He is now the Slam Poet Champion of Victoria and recently came third in the national titles. He is also about to have his second book published and perform at the Glastonbury festival. However, he still can't get a job, is subjected to daily racism. Nick is the founder of a fledgling political party who says allowing Africans like Abraham into Australia is asking for trouble. He believes they can't assimilate, are a welfare drain on the economy and have nothing to contribute to a society built on Anglo-Celtic foundations.

Morteza is a 30-year old, former 'boat person' who landed on Xmas Island after fleeing Iran. He spent four uncertain years in detention during which he converted to Christianity, escaped from Woomera Detention Centre, sparked the riot that burned down the Port Hedland Detention Centre and famously sewed his lips together in the Villawood Detention Centre. He is exactly the sort of asylum seeker Jenni from Queensland says should not be allowed to stay in Australia.

Almost half the Muslims in Australia live in south-western Sydney. The majority in just five suburbs centered on Bankstown. Ben was born and bred in Bankstown, he's seen his world change as Arab Muslims have stamped their identity on his home suburb, and he doesn't like what he sees. Ahmed and Lydia are a devout Muslim couple living in western Sydney. Ahmed is from Egypt, Lydia is a convert who grew up in a country pub. Lydia converted as a result of the September 11 terror attacks. She wanted to find out why they had happened, what motivated the hijackers. Instead of discovering a religion of hate and war, she says, she discovered a religion of peace and justice. Ben believes there is no such thing as a moderate Muslim. Can Lydia and Ahmed convince him otherwise?

In this final episode of First Contact season two, the group finds themselves at the West Kimberley Regional Prison to experience what life is like in an Aboriginal prison. As night falls, they have a decision to make. A cell is available. Who in the group will take up the offering of joining the 10,000 Indigenous people locked up every night in Australia? In the morning, the group heads due east to the tiny town of Coen in far north Queensland, one of four communities to be part of a radical welfare reform experiment. They experience a controversial teaching technique that aims to close the education gap and get Aboriginal kids reading, writing and ultimately into work to escape the cycle of welfare dependency, and debate and opinions are stirred up again.

Ray Martin takes a group of six well-known Australians with diverse, deeply entrenched preconceptions and opinions about our nation's Indigenous people on a journey into Aboriginal Australia when First Contact returns for a brand new season, over three big nights. In this episode, the group heads due south towards the tiny town of Elliott, half way between Darwin and Alice Springs, and a place that has been called the 'forgotten town'. They meet local 'SK' who currently lives in a four-bedroom house with anywhere up to 20 other people. Natalie and Nicki are both shocked by what they are seeing in their own country. Then the six separate as the women head to Cootamundra and the men to Kempsey to visit sites of the former girls' and boys' homes that the Stolen Generations were sent to.
