The Age of Bones (Jaman Belulang) is a stunning Indonesian-Australian co-production set deep beneath the sea written by Darwin playwright Sandra Thibodeaux.

It follows the fantastical story of an Indonesian boy, Ikan, who goes fishing one day and fails to return home.

Assuming the worst, his parents hire a legendary seafarer to look for his corpse. He finds nothing.

The Age of Bones traces what happened to Ikan – from the day he left to his eventual imprisonment in Australia and his fight to return home.
