Australian sci-fi series. When Waruu's wayward half-brother Koen is given a gift by their Uncle Jimmy, he doesn't realise the power that has been bestowed upon him.
In the near future in Australia, ancient species the Hairypeople find themselves persecuted and exploited by humans. Branded 'subhumans' they are forced to live separately in a 'The Zone', where they find some solidarity with their few human neighbours and the human leader, Waruu West.
When Waruu's wayward half-brother Koen is given a gift by their Uncle Jimmy, he doesn't realise the power that has been bestowed upon him, but Jimmy has chosen Koen over Waruu to be the Cleverman, the one who can unite the species and protect the Hairypeople from being destroyed by the humans.
