Good movie, not very long though. My 9 and 12-year-olds enjoyed it very much. At the beginning of the movie it said there are adult scenes but there was nothing so it is safe for children to watch.
If you were kidnapped by the government, would you walk the 1500 miles back home?
It's the 1930's in outback Australia. Three young Aboriginal girls - sisters Molly (Everlyn Sampi) and Daisy (Tianna Sansbury) and their cousin Gracie (Laura Monaghan) are snatched from their mothers' arms in Jigalong, Western Australia and sent to a remote settlement at Moore River. 1500 miles away from home, distanced from their mothers and forced to adapt to a strange new world, the girls attempt the impossible and embark on a daring escape.
What ensues is an epic journey across an unforgiving landscape that will test the girls' very will to survive. Their only resources - tenacity, determination, ingenuity and each other. Their one hope - find the rabbit-proof fence that might just guide them home.
