Footprints In The Sand is a story of love for family, country and culture. Geoffrey Stewart is a wiry, good-humoured Martu man born 60 years ago at an extremely remote location in the Gibson Desert, 600 km northeast of the town of Wiluna. It is over 40 years since "Yullala", as Geoffrey is better known, has visited his birthplace. Footprints in the Sand tracks Yullala and members of his community back to that location. It is an emotional journey, whose significance lies not only in the length of time since visiting his birthplace but, also, in Yullala's particular parentage.
