Synopsis

Sixteen year old Yuma lives with her wealthy father and step family in Sydney. Kyanna, also 16, lives in a community in the central Australian desert with her mother and extended family.

When the pair discover their connection, and decide they want to meet the parent they don’t know, they agree to swap lives – just for a day. Little do they know what will go wrong. When each twin becomes stranded in the other’s world, the fun really starts …
