The year is 1788, Australia. Two Aboriginal warriors capture three British shipwreck survivors:  

A naval officer, a maid and a convict, and take them back to camp. The Aboriginals argue over the fate of these “boat people” and whether their way of life will change if they let more of them in, 240 years later. We return to the present where the descendants of the Aboriginals are now hiding an Afghani asylum seeker from immigration officials who are the descendants of the British shipwreck survivors!
