BBC Films Review

Set in 1931 Australia, after being abducted from their homes by the government to be trained as domestic staff for a white family, three Aboriginal girls escape from their captors and begin the long walk home across the Outback, following the rabbit-proof fence. 

'The Quiet American' director Philip Noyce spins a harrowing web in this superb study of race hate in Australia.
