The Screen Guide

In 1961, at the age of two, Rosalie Fraser was taken from her Aboriginal family by the Western Australian Child Welfare Department and made a ward of the state. For years, she suffered physical and emotional abuse at the hands of her foster mother. Beautifully photographed, this dramatised documentary tells her inspiring story of triumph over adversity. As Rosalie recounts her journey of self-discovery, we experience her pain, anguish and finally joy at being able to confront and accept the past.
