Rabbit-Proof Fence is an Australian drama, based on the book “Follow the Rabbit-Proof Fence” by Doris Pilkington Garimara. It concerns the author's mother, and two other young mixed-race Aboriginal girls, who run away from the Moore River Native Settlement, north of Perth, in order to return to their Aboriginal families, after being placed there in 1931. The film follows the girls as they trek/walk for nine weeks along 1,500 miles of the rabbit-proof fence to return to their community at Jigalong while being tracked by a white authority figure and a black tracker.
