In remote Pilbara country in Western Australia, Murra (Shantae Barnes-Cowan) is a troubled 16-year-old Indigenous girl who finds herself abandoned by her drug addict mother. On the cusp of being lost in the child protection system, an unusual lifeline is thrown her way by her uncle Ian (Mark Coles Smith), the local cop, in the form of a unique photo safari youth retreat. Before she knows it, Murra is careening down a dusty highway with a minibus full of at-risk teens on a trip that will change her life forever.
Sweet As is an uplifting coming-of-age road movie about unconventional friendships, first crushes and discovering who you are on the road less travelled.
