The basis for the title of this true story is the path which three girls from Aboriginal and white parents follow when they flee from Western Australia. They leave their lives as domestic servants where they are not allowed to recognize their Aboriginal roots and set off on an incredible 1500 kilometer journey across the Outback. This film shows both sides of the race debate in Australia, presenting the rationale behind each decision that is made.
