As the Japanese bomb Australia’s north, 95 Aboriginal children and their missionary carers make a remarkable journey to safety across the continent. This ‘little’ party sets off on a trek that takes them from Croker Island through Arnhem Land to a Methodist farm at Otford on the edge of Sydney. Over 44 days they travel 5,000 miles by foot, boat, canoe, truck and train.

This compelling documentary is their story, in their own words, a truly heroic and untold journey.
