A biography of peace activist Ruby Penfold. Moving from an isolated Australian island, her life journey culminates in London, campaigning for peace in Afghanistan.
In foster care in the late 1960s, Ruby enjoys awakening emotions, but her heart is broken when Vietnam steals her first lover.
After the search for her birthright turns to anguish, Ruby leaves Australia ending up in London where she marries Andrew. They have two children.
Anti-war activities engulf Ruby's life, and during the early 2000s, she joins London's Mothers for Peace. Arrested in 2011, protesting NATO troop deaths in Afghanistan, her story unveils a surprising but delightful twist.
A Mother's Song traces Ruby's search for identity and making her mark.
