This poorly made Australian documentary attempts to tell the tale of the Aboriginal children who were forcibly removed from their families by the government of New South Wales from 1900 to 1969, and who now are seeking to reunite with them. There is an organization of social workers called Link-up which exists solely to bring the families broken up by this policy back together. The film's amateur director was forced for budgetary reasons to be his own sound man, screenwriter, and editor, and reviewers felt that the results gave every evidence of that fact, while applauding the attempt.
