When Australia came to the assistance of the country of East Timor, help came in many forms and had a number of different objectives. One was to secure their political future - another was to create a strong social framework from which this emerging nation could create lasting changes within their community. Within these communities, it is often the women who are responsible for the education of the children and the health and wellbeing of the entire community. Independent Future is a documentary about people - women and girls in particular, who through access to life changing opportunities, are starting to be able to bring about positive change to their families and the wider society.
