The husband of Molly Johnson (Leah Purcell) is away droving sheep, leaving her alone to care for their 4 children at their remote Snowy Mountains homestead.  

 

Despite being heavily pregnant, Molly keeps various threats, from nature and other people, at bay.  

 

But when Yadaka (Rob Collins), an Aboriginal man on the run from white law enforcement, intrudes on the sanctuary she has carved out, they must confront the brutal hardships and secrets that have followed them both throughout their lives. 

 
Written, directed by and starring Leah Purcell, The Drover’s Wife hits with a punch, using the Henry Lawson poem to tell the story of a feisty mother protecting her family and home.  
 
Purcell has done a remarkable job piecing together something even greater than Lawson offered’ – The Australian
