Synopsis

Western Australia, 1931. Ordered by the Chief Protector of Aborigines (Branagh) to be taken from their homes and relocated in a special unit for half-caste children, sisters Daisy and Molly and their cousin Grace seize their first opportunity to escape. In this amazing episode from one of the darkest chapters of Australian history, they set out to trek 2000 km, guided by the rabbit-proof fence that bisects the outback, pursued by an Aboriginal tracker (played by Gulpilil - Nic Roeg's boy star in Walkabout). Wonderful acting, dazzling cinematography and a haunting score by Peter Gabriel.
