A brother and sister's quest to avoid separation.
24 November 2000 | by srmccarthySee all my reviews

Sammy and Andy are orphaned and discover that they will be separated, so they run away through the Australian wilderness hoping to travel to England and join the only family they have. This movie is pretty good, in fact very good. However the only problem I have with it is that it is about 30 minutes longer than it need be. The best aspect is the detailed development of friendship between the siblings and those they encounter along the way.
