    'The Parramatta Girls Training School operated from 1889 to its close in the late 1970s as a state home for 'uncontrollable' girls. Under the guise of 'reforming' them, these teenagers were subjected to mental, emotional and physical brutality. It was a start in life that was metered out to vulnerable, uniformly poor and frequently indigenous women. 'Parramatta Girls' is based on verbatim accounts of the women who were incarcerated at the Parramatta Girls Training School.'
