More than half way through Dr Mary Fortune's secondment, an Australian general election is called. Dr Mary hopes this could lead to a new dawn in indigenous health funding but the signs aren't good. As her time in Kununurra continues, Dr Mary becomes aware of the prominent role alcohol plays in her patient's lives. With a rising tide of alcohol-related illness and violence, and dwindling resources, Dr Mary finds out how hard it can be just to get one man a place in rehab.
