In 1931 the authorities seized 14-year-old Molly Craig from her desert home in Jigalong, western Australia, with her younger sister Daisy and cousin Gracie. Official policy decreed that the three girls be taken to the Moore River Native Settlement, where they were to be trained as domestic servants. Their trauma was intensified by Moore River's harsh regime and Molly soon decided it was time to go home, to their mothers. And the only way home was to walk. The true story of the girls' 1600 kilometre journey back to Jigalong is now a major film directed by Phillip Noyce. (3 male, 6 female).
