Summary
A mix of music, documentary and drama "The Drover's Boy" is set in the Australian outback in the 1920s and reflects the subterfuge that Aboriginal women were forced to endure as it was illegal for Aboriginals and white Australians to get married. In this story the wife was made to dress like the drover's boy, cutting her hair, binding her breasts and changing her name so no-one would know
