The film follows Quenten over 4 years as, faced with a housing boom, his heritage group struggles to save their ancestors’ burial grounds and other ancient sites from destruction. Quenten and his mob have the guts to stand up, to speak out and express their views and to fight for what they believe in. Sacred Ground is their story.
