Poignantly told from the child's perspective, Sister Heart affirms the power of family and kinship.

A young Aboriginal girl is taken from the north of Australia and sent to an institution in the distant south. There, she slowly makes a new life for herself and, in the face of tragedy, finds strength in new friendships.
