Summary
This is an extraordinary story of courage and faith. It is based on the actual experiences of three girls who fled from the repressive life of Moore River Native settlement, following the rabbit-proof fence back to their homelands. Assimilationist policy deemed that these girls were taken from their kin and their land in order to be made white. Of all the journeys made since white people set foot on Australian soil, the 1931 journey made by these girls born to Aboriginal mothers and white fathers speaks something to us all
