Vote Yes

Synopsis

It’s May 27, 1967 – Australia’s referendum on Aboriginal rights. Two women unite as a family come to terms with the prospect of change.

Vote Yes is a story that follows a family as they prepare to head to the polls. The power plays between black and white, male and female, and confrontation looms as Susan and Elizabeth seek to go vote but Howard (father, husband and employer) literally holds the keys to opportunity and change.
