"Rabbit-Proof Fence"

In the book, "Follow the Rabbit-Proof Fence" by Doris Pilkington Garimara, the fence was used in the 1930s by three Indigenous Australian girls for their route back home to Jigalong.

The girls taken from their parents in Western Australia as part of the Stolen Generation, escaped from the Moore River Native Settlement mission where they were being held and walked back to their family at Jigalong by following the rabbit-proof fence.

Phillip Noyce's masterpiece.

I loved the movie, though their lives took an even more tragic turn afterward. So very sad.

The shocking events that lead to the siblings fleeing give great meaning to their courageous decision. She exhibits selflessness, and her protectiveness towards her sister and cousin is shown when she does her best to stick with them throughout their time in the fence
