I recall a movie with similar plot. It was shot in the Australian Outback, and involved a Maori youth on walkabout who rescues them. The timeframe is similar - its at least 40 years ago. –  wbogacz Feb 27 at 17:13

Pretty much 3-for-3. Either you're all right, or you're all wrong. The previous submissions don't have an acceptance yet. –  wbogacz Oct 17 at 1:40
Welcome to Movies & TV you might want to clarify in which way this answer adds anything to the already existing half a year old answer that says exactly the same, or at least clarify in which way this movie fits to the description given in the question, as the other answer does. –  Napoleon Wilson Oct 17 at 9:18
