Clara Jackamarra vivdly remembers and describes the day a man in black persuaded her to go for a ride in a boat.
She never saw her mother again. After the age of nine, she was to spend forty years on missions in Western
Australia, where separation of children of mixed marriages from their parents was official government policy until
the late 1950s. The same happened to her children and her grandchildren. Clara's granddaughter and
great-grandson trace the story of the generations of children who grew up without the love of their mothers.
