Summary A Dying Shame examines the plight of Aboriginal health in Australia. Through the personal stories of families and individuals within the Aboriginal community in Borroloola in the Northern Territory, this film reveals the human tragedy behind the bald statistics of Aboriginal health. Shot over nine months the film documents the struggles of individuals and their families in the face of poor health and an ineffectual health system, said to be one of the most inequitable health services in the Western world
