“We’re going home, to mother”

Based on the true story of three young Aboriginal girls, Molly and Daisy and their cousin, Gracie, who were forcibly removed from their mothers and their home in Jigalong in 1931 and moved over 1500 miles away as part of the Stolen Generation. Molly leads her younger sister and cousin on a brave escape and in a bid to find their way home, following the rabbit-proof fence that cuts across the Gibson Desert and towards Jigalong. Adapted from the book Follow the Rabbit Proof Fence by Doris Pilkington Garimara (based on her mother’s experience) and directed by Phillip Noyce (Dead Calm, Newsfront), this is an Australian classic.
