Deals with the forced adoptions of Aboriginal children taken from their families to live as white children. In the 1960s before the referendum on full citizenship rights for Aboriginal people in 1967, a little girl is taken from her mother. In the 1990s as a young woman, she discovers by chance that she is adopted and Aboriginal. The play relates to one aspect of Aboriginal history in a moving and sympathetic way, using humour to highlight the story (2 acts, 1 man, 9 women).
