The Australian government has rounded up children of Australian aborigines. They will take care of them as if they were orphans, and as a bonus, they intend to wipe out the Australian aborigine culture in the process. If no one passes it down, it'll go away.Our protagonists are three "half-caste" Aborigine girls, 14-year-old Molly, her 8-year-old sister Daisy, and their cousin, 10-year-old Gracie. The three are taken from their mothers and put in one of the British/Australian government centers for aborigine children. It is on the opposite coast of the country from their home. Molly leads the other girls in an escape and they try to make their way home, following the "rabbit-proof" fence that runs all the way across Australia to protect the cattle grazing lands from the rabbits. The journey is hundreds of miles long, and there are skilled trackers following them.Inspired By a true story, and based on the book written by the real Molly's daughter.
