Synopsis: Three women uncover the rags-to-respectability tale of their ancestors—the feisty convicts who became the unlikely founding mothers of modern Australia. In 1789, the fledgling penal settlement in Sydney was battling to survive, but help would come from a most unlikely quarter. This is the rip-roaring tale of The Lady Juliana and the boatload of streetgirls, thieves and con-women who sailed to the ends of the earth to breathe life and a sense of enterprise into a dying colony. Together they would give Australia something much more - a future. (Press kit)
