True Colours


Rarriwuy Hick plays Detective Toni Alma who is assigned to investigate a suspicious car accident in Perdar Theendar, the Aboriginal community she left as a child and has had little to do with over the years.

The beauty of Aboriginal art and the sometimes-devious practices in the global art market take Detective Toni Alma on an epic hunt for a killer.

Spanning her small Northern Territory community and art galleries across the globe, this is a murder mystery like no other, exploring culture, community and the very human pursuit of identity and belonging.
