Description

Hong Kong, 1917. Insular. Elitist. Racially divided.

Senior British administrator Philip Jacks hatched a scheme to send local mixed-race war-orphan children, who were otherwise destined for lives of prostitution and domestic drudgery, to Australia at the height of the White Australia Policy. His chances of success seemed slight. Had he lost his mind or had he ‘gone native’? Was ‘going native’ really a state of abandonment? Or was it a series of decent decisions that had unexpected consequence?
