Walkabout is a 1971 British movie, or "film" as they say in the Commonwealth, about two children who are abandoned in the Australian outback when their father goes mad monkey kung-fu crazy, shoots at them, and then commits suicide. Forced to travel alone amongst the aborigines and to "go to the loo" in the "out-of-doors," they travel, or "manoeuvre" through the unforgiving subequatorial landscape, fighting hunger, or "peckishness," discovering in themselves hidden blah blah blah etc. etc. in their quest for survival.
