Eighteen-year-old Brianne Yarran is a talented dancer in her last year of high school. For her final year performance she decides to use her Nanna's story as the inspiration for her solo dance routine.

Bree has always known that her three Nannas were part of the Stolen Generations but she never truly understood what this meant or the impact on their lives.

To do their story justice and to create a powerful dance piece, she must go on a difficult journey and learn the truth of their experience.
