If the government kidnapped you, would you walk the 1500 miles back home? In 1931, three half-caste children from Western Australia did just that. 14-year-old Molly (Everlyn Sampi), her 8-year-old sister Daisy (Tianna Sansbury), and their 10-year-old cousin Gracie (Laura Monaghan), all fathered by itinerant white workers, are stolen from their Aborigine mothers and sent to an institution to be trained into "white" Australians. Told they have no mothers, the girls revolt, escape, and begin the long walk home-all 1,500 miles-navigating by following the fence built across the nation to stem the spread of rabbits

Australien, 1931, in einem Aborigine Dorf namens Jigalong: Ein heranrasendes Auto zieht eine gewaltige Staubwolke hinter sich her. Plötzlich stürmen Männer aus dem Wagen. Wenige Augenblicke später verflüchtigt sich der Staub - und drei Kinder sind verschwunden. Gewaltsam haben die Männer die 14-jährige Molly, ihre achtjährige Schwester Daisy sowie deren zehnjährige Cousine Gracie aus ihren Familien gerissen. Ganz legal, im Namen der Regierung, denn die australische Rassenpolitik duldet keine Mischlingskinder. Oberster Sittenwächter ist der Eingeborenen Beauftragte A.O. Neville. Tausende von Kindern lässt er mit Polizeigewalt aus ihrer Heimat verschleppen, um sie in zuchthausartigen Heimen zu einfachen Bediensteten für die weiße Oberschicht umzuerziehen - "für ein neues Leben in einer weißen Gesellschaft", wie Neville betont. Quer durch den Kontinent werden Molly, Daisy und Gracie in das fast 2.500 Kilometer entfernte Erziehungsheim Camp Moore River transportiert. Zwei Nächte halten es die Mädchen in ihrem Gefängnis aus. Dann wagen sie das Unmögliche: Sie treten die nahezu endlose Flucht nach Hause an. Dabei orientieren sie sich an dem großen Zaun, der den Kontinent zerteilt, um Kaninchen vom Farmland fernzuhalten, dem Rabbit-Proof Fence. Doch den müssen sie erst einmal finden. Monatelang sind Molly, Daisy und Gracie in der lebensfeindlichen Einöde auf sich gestellt - verfolgt vom unbarmherzigen Fährtensucher Moodoo. Die naturverbundene Lebensweise ihres Stammes hilft den Kindern, in der Wüste zu überleben. Doch überzeugt von seinen martialischen Erziehungsmethoden setzt Neville alles daran, die Mädchen wieder einzufangen

Australien, 1931. Konsequent verfolgt der Chief Protector of Aborigines die australische Rassenpolitik. Ziel ist, alle Mischlingskinder in staatlichen Heimen zu Englisch sprechenden Hausangestellten und Farmarbeitern umzuerziehen.

Molly beschliesst mit Daisy und Gracie aus dem Camp zu fliehen. 1.500 Meilen trennen sie von ihrem Zuhause. Die einzige Orientierung, die die Mädchen in der endlosen Weite Australiens haben, ist ein Zaun, der als Schutz vor Kaninchenplagen den gesamten Kontinent durchläuft - der "Rabbit-Proof Fence". Verfolgt von der Polizei und dem erbarmungslosen Spurensucher Moodoo machen sich Molly, Daisy und Gracie auf den weiten Weg nach Jigalong. (Quelle: Umschlag)
