A Creative Dawn Production

Against all odds, The Tannin women take the risk of a lifetime in a fight for their connection to country, culture and kin.
Ngarngk; Giver of life is the story of Missy, her mum Sally, and Nan Cherie, as they navigate a world that has underestimated them for far too long. Will the authorities interrupt another generation of the Tannin family? Will these women find healing through the birth of a new generation?
