In 1931, three young Aboriginal girls escaped from the Moore River Native Settlement and walked more than 1600 kilometres across remote Western Australia to rejoin their family.

Doris Pilkington (Nugi Garimara) tells the story with true pathos - it is based on the escape of her mother and two cousins. Adapted for film by Phillip Noyce and starring Kenneth Branagh.
