Drugs, alcohol, and fighting have riven Robinvale, a small border town along the Murray River in Victoria, causing endless pain to its small community. Daryl Singh knows the men’s stories better than most. In organising the ‘men’s shed’ – a place for men to gather, receive counselling and hold community events – he has felt their pain and is committed to restoring pride in their daily lives. In 2011 the men embark on a journey by bus to Melbourne, to participate in the ‘Thousand Warrior March’. For Daryl and the men it is a moment to show their true colours, confront their demons, and repair the past.
