A brave young man travels the seas in the abdomen of a large whale (‘mamang’). The man squeezes the heart of the whale and the old song he sings spurs it on to take him on a very special journey. It transports him far west of his home country, where his life is changed forever.
Told in old Noongar, contemporary Noongar and English, Mamang captures the deep spiritual connection of the Wirlomin people of South-Western Australia with the sea.
