Ken and Margaret McKenzie are Aboriginal community elders in Port Augusta. Everyone, including white youth, call them "Nan" and "Poppa". "They adopt us, so we adopt them," Ken McKenzie explains.

They live in a tiny cluttered ramshackle home where the occasional mouse is seen running through open spaces. The small two-bedroom hut currently houses four people: their two grandsons, Paulie and Dylan, live with them. They complain there is no room for people to stay over.
