'A young Aboriginal woman, Annie, and her brother, Pat, escape from their respective "Homes" in the 1940's and find their way to a Mission on the South Coast of NSW.
The first half of the play explores their attempts to survive in what is often an oppressive environment. In Act 2, twenty years later, the play follows Annie's daughter Pearl as she attempts to come to terms with her Aboriginality and then is encouraged to re-unite with her estranged mother.
The play explores questions of identity and white Australia's relationship with its Aboriginal past.' (RGM Associates website, http://www.rgm.com.au/nm_lit.html)
