It is a myth that the first Australians were eradicated in Tasmania. Instead, it should be their resilience, in spite of the overwhelming impact of white settlement, that is embodied in myth. When the land-grab moves south to Tasmania, it is decided that, in an effort to protect real estate prices, Tasmanian Aboriginal people should be moved from the island. The Government enlists an Englishmen for the job, who is helped by a young Aboriginal woman, Truganini.
