Laurel's Story - from Sapphire to Saigon


Laurel's story maps the journey of a mother and son who unearth the truth behind the story of original ‘Sapphire’ Laurel Robinson. While the feature film ‘The Sapphires’ has gone on to enjoy accolades and major box office success in Australia and overseas, the real-life story at its heart is all about soul, love, family and dreaming of a better future.

Laurel’s story is a glimpse into the strength of a community coming out from the control of missions and being able to see themselves as active members of the mainstream society.
