Kids' Whirled: Rabbit-Proof Fence [PG]

The remarkable true story of three young girls who cross the harsh Australian desert on foot to return to their home, based on the novel by Doris Pilkington and Nugi Garimara. Rabbit-Proof Fence is a powerful film that proves that children can be heroes too.
In 1930s Australia, children born to mixed race parents were often taken from their Aboriginal mothers by the state to be brought up working as servants for white families. That is the fate which awaits the half-Aboriginal Molly Craig, her cousin and younger sister after they are sent to a re-settlement camp. But Molly and the other two girls escape and attempt to return to their real home - heading for the 1500 mile long rabbit-proof fence that will finally lead them back where they belong.
