It's 2067, Australia first Aboriginal President had made plans for the day, time travel wasn't one of them.

Paul: My heritage?
Ruth: Your Aboriginality.
Paul: I’m not a practising Aboriginal. Or is it Aborigine?
Ruth: I get confused as well.

A humorous story, brimming with Aboriginal vernacular and optimism, about how things are, what they could be and the importance of remembering your roots.

Paul Toppy, is your everyday Aboriginal President of Australia. The problem is Paul doesn’t know much about being Aboriginal. All that changes, however, when, one day, while on the election trail, Paul steps onto country.

Paul is flung back to 2013, where disgruntled, and not to mention highly inconvenienced, he happens on a family of not-quite-so-tall (obviously unrelated) Toppys, who welcome this new (obviously crazy) Toppy into their home and their lives. During his time with the Toppy Clan, Paul starts to question his beliefs about family and identity, and begins to discover the true meaning of success, while the family learn what might be achieved with higher aspirations.

Oliver’s dialogue crackles with black humour and hope, and the meeting of present with future results in some highly entertaining moments as the esteemed Paul Toppy encounters a past he’d rather forget.

In the tradition of ‘Bran Nue Dae’, ‘The Sapphires’, ‘Redfern Now’ and ‘Mabo’, ‘Proper Solid joins a rapidly growing genre of contemporary Aboriginal story-telling which has an irresistibly wide appeal.
