Synopsis: In 1931, three aboriginal girls escape after being plucked from their homes to be trained as domestic staff and set off on a journey across the Outback.

From 1910 until 1970 half-caste Aborigine children could be forcibly removed from their parents and trained to be servants to white people. Got to love the church and its everlasting attempt to really mess up the lives of humans.

This is the story of three children who, in 1931, escaped from this fate and travelled across 1500 miles of Australia to return to their homes. It is based on the book written by the daughter of the youngest Aborigine portrayed in the movie.

There is much in this story to give inspiration, there is also much to despise. It is not the Australians, it is not even just white people, it is mostly the belief that some humans need to be "civilized", that is, turned into what we want them to be. This is an excellent movie and should be watched by all.
