520    "In the spring of 1789, a ship left port in London bound 
       for the Botany Bay penal colony in Australia.  The ship 
       carried precious cargo - women, sent to keep the desperate
       male colonists from engaging in what their governor called
       'gross irregularities.'  But these women were hardly quiet
       homemakers - they were a hardy raucous lot rounded up from
       London's notorious Newgate prison and other jails around 
       the country, and they did not submit quietly to their 
       forced voyage and the rough life they knew was ahead.  
       Once aboard the Lady Juliana, these destitute convicts -- 
       thieves, prostitutes and con artists -- turned their 
       banishment into opportunity, setting up a business before 
       they arrived in Botany Bay.  As they traveled from port to
       port en route to Australia, many offered themselves to 
       sailors from other ships.  With liquor flowing and bodices
       bursting, they took control of their destinies, and 
       eventually arrived in Australia, healthy and ready to take
       on the new world.  Voyage of the Courtesans brings to 
       light the true story of the voyage of Lady Juliana.  The 
       film will delve into the history with the help of these 
       ladies modern-day descendents.  The audience will follow 
       as these women uncover their pasts, unearthing the truth 
       about their spirited ancestors, and comparing themselves 
       to the women of the Lady Juliana, who managed to play the 
       tough cards they were dealt into an unexpected winning 
       hand" - - From cover.
