Oppression.  Slander.  Sex.  Fear.  Loathing.  Freedom. Future.

What happened to these women?  How did they survive the great injustice of social branding, incarceration and court sanctioned kidnapping? What role did they play in the development of one of the harshest convict settlements of them all – Moreton Bay?

All the way around the world, and half way between whore and history – this is no way to start a nation.
