In 1965, at the age of 3 months, Zeitha Murphy was removed from the care of her Aboriginal mother Margaret Jane Murphy and placed into the care of St Vincents Orphanage in Nudgee, Brisbane. After being adopted into the home of an elderly spinster (Mrs. McPhee), Zeitha would experience years of emotional and physical abuse, only cementing her feeling of displacement and isolation within society and her life. The sheer trauma of her youth would, in later life, encourage an array of mental illnesses, including depression and anxiety.However, accompanied by her unwavering positive mindset and determination to create a better life for herself and her sons, Zeitha will embark on a journey of self-discovery to find her true place in society and her birth family.
