An Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander man, Alfred spends his days living and sleeping outside moving from town to town looking for work until the day he decides to sign up for the Army during World War I. Wounded physically and mentally, he returns home and discovers that life has not changed much for him. He has become one of the forgotten soldiers. Only in recent times have the contributions of indigenous servicemen and women during WWI been recognised.
