Rabbit-Proof Fence tells the true story of three young aboriginal girls with white fathers. Molly, Daisy and Gracie are forcibly removed from their families in Western Australia in 1931. They are supposed to be trained as domestic servants and farm laborers as part of an official government program to «breed out» the aborigines. The so-called home turns out to be a dump where the girls are constantly humiliated. They escape and embark on an epic 1,500 mile journey, following the rabbit-proof fence to get back home, with the authorities chasing them all the way.
