518    Originally produced by Ronin Films in 2000. 
520    Between 1910 and 1970 in Australia, 1 in 3 children were 
       removed from Aboriginal families and placed in 
       institutions and foster homes. These children, in most 
       cases, were never to see their family again. The film 
       tells 3 stories of Aboriginal people who were removed. 
       Bobby Randall: a singer/songwriter, recalls the traumatic 
       experience of being placed in a mission dormitory at the 
       age of 4. He describes the experience of 'shrinking' 
       emotionally. Bobby spent 9 years searching for his mother 
       and eventually found out she had died soon after he was 
       taken. Cleonie Quayle: a mother of four, remembers at the 
       age of 5 being enticed into the back seat of a large black
       car. She thought she was going off for a holiday, waved to
       her mother but all she could see were tears in her eyes. 
       Cleonie spent the next 12 years in foster families where 
       she experienced sexual abuse. Her mother later died an 
       alcoholic. Cleonie's story is one of courage and survival.
       Daisy Howard: a Kimberley woman, was separated from her 
       half-sister May fifty years ago. Daisy was removed to a 
       cattle station where she worked as a domestic, and later 
       to a mission where she eventually married, while May grew 
       up in the bush with her parents. The two sisters re-unite 
       in the film recalling and comparing their experiences. The
       stories are combined with interviews with two well-known 
       Australian historians Marcia Langton and Henry Reynolds 
       who describe the racist assumptions behind these policies.
       Removing children was a deliberate government policy and 
       the end aimed for was the eventual disappearance of 
       Aborigines as a people. Illustrated with striking archive 
       footage and a first person narration by Aboriginal 
       director Darlene Johnson. The film ends with the 
       contemporary debate in Australia - how the current Prime 
       Minister John Howard, while recognising past wrongs and 
       expressing his 'regret', refuses to make an official 
       apology and say 'sorry' on behalf of the Australian
