InВ RabbitВ proofВ fence, В IВ wasВ shockedВ andВ disgustedВ atВ theВ treatmentВ ofВ halfВ­casteВ childrenВ inВ AustraliaВ duringВ theВ 1930s. В InВ thisВ textВ MollyВ aВ youngВ halfВ­casteВ childВ isВ snatchedВ fromВ herВ AboriginalВ homeland, В JigalongВ andВ placedВ intoВ theВ MooreВ riverВ settlement. В TheВ charactersВ thatВ runВ theВ settlementВ constrictВ mollyВ andВ herВ sistersВ ofВ theirВ identityВ andВ forcefullyВ injectВ theВ trioВ withВ theirВ ownВ EuropeanВ beliefs. В MissВ JessopВ (oneВ ofВ theВ caretakers)В overhearsВ GracieВ talkВ inВ herВ nativeВ tongue, В andВ snapsВ atВ herВ saying ​ " ThisВ isВ yourВ newВ home. В WeВ don'tВ useВ

that jabber here.  You speak English”​

В TheВ charactersВ inВ thisВ filmВ doВ notВ understandВ theВ aboriginalВ wayВ ofВ lifeВ soВ insteadВ ofВ adaptingВ towardsВ theirВ lifestyleВ theyВ forceВ halfВ­casteВ likeВ Molly, В GracieВ andВ DaisyВ toВ integrateВ intoВ theВ EuropeanВ wayВ ofВ lifeВ byВ rippingВ awayВ theirВ AboriginalВ heritage. В IВ thoughtВ thisВ wasВ veryВ unjustВ andВ despicable, В asВ theyВ doВ notВ evenВ allowВ halfВ­castesВ toВ liveВ theВ wayВ theyВ want. В В В

theВ 3В seesВ anВ opportunityВ toВ escapeВ andВ takesВ it, В takingВ herВ cousinsВ withВ her. В InsteadВ ofВ allowingВ herВ toВ leave, В theВ supportingВ EuropeanВ charactersВ tryВ thereВ bestВ toВ huntВ herВ down, В soВ theyВ canВ makeВ anВ exampleВ outВ ofВ her. В TheyВ usedВ fearВ andВ terrorВ toВ keepВ kidsВ atВ theВ camp, В thisВ IВ thoughtВ wasВ cruelВ onВ theirВ behalf, В asВ theyВ haveВ toВ useВ violenceВ toВ controlВ kids. В MollyВ makesВ itВ homeВ inВ theВ endВ withВ daisy, В butВ GracieВ getsВ caughtВ alongВ theВ way. В SheВ usesВ aВ guideВ calledВ theВ rabbitВ proofВ fenceВ toВ getВ herВ home.
