Cleverman is a supernatural-drama TV show based on Australian Aboriginal Dreamtime lore. The mythic figure of the Cleverman is somewhat reimagined in the show into a modern superhero-esque setting.
Sometime in the near future, humans discovered that there was another species living among us. Dubbed 'Hairypeople', they were promptly locked up in the Zone and isolated from a humanity that fears and hates them.
Meanwhile, Waruu West believes he is next in line to receive the title of Cleverman (a spiritual leader with a connection to the Dreaming), but when it goes to his half-brother Koen, things take a dark turn.
