Summary
If the government kidnapped you, would you walk the 1500 miles back home? In 1931, three half-caste children from Western Australia did just that. 14-year-old Molly (Everlyn Sampi), her 8-year-old sister Daisy (Tianna Sansbury), and their 10-year-old cousin Gracie (Laura Monaghan), all fathered by itinerant white workers, are stolen from their Aborigine mothers and sent to an institution to be trained into "white" Australians. Told they have no mothers, the girls revolt, escape, and begin the epic journey back to Western Australia-all 1,500 miles-navigating by following the fence built across the nation to stem the spread of rabbits
