Summary:

Lance Hackett is a sympathetic geologist working in Australia for an uranium mining company who must confront the passive resistance of the aborigine tribes. The spot where the deposits are the richest is considered sacred ground. For the aborigine people, the place where the deposits lay is considered the place "where the green ants dream", for them this place is considered the origin of all life. In the clash between white imperialism and a more spiritual, primitive culture, we see the irrevocable tragedy of false progress, in which civilization has lost touch with nature and the universe.
