Description Follow Broken Hill cab driver Max (Barry Otto) on the first and last great journey of his life - straight up the guts of the wide, brown Australian landscape. Diagnosed with cancer, and at the centre of a life and death debate, Max leaves his hometown to discover a hidden and forgotten land that's gasping for breath. With a host of unforgettable characters and beautiful imagery, "Last Cab to Darwin" makes for a hilarious dust-choked odyssey.
