The Drover’s Wife – The Legend of Molly Johnson


In 1893 on an isolated property, a heavily pregnant woman and her children struggle to survive the harsh Australian landscape; her husband is gone, droving sheep in the high country. Molly then finds herself confronted by shackled Aboriginal fugitive: as an unlikely bond begins to form between them, secrets unravel about her true identity. Meanwhile, realising Molly’s husband is missing, new town lawman Nate Clintoff becomes suspicious and sends his constable to investigate. The deadly encounter between Molly, Yadaka and the constable results in a tragic chain of events with Molly becoming a symbol of feminism and anti-racism.
