Come now Mother, she wants to go with Ned.

Burka Woman is not alone on the ship to Australia. 
She is travelling with her cousin and Aunty. 
She meets Ned Kelly, and wants to hang out with him for a while. 
No wonder, he looks so strong and brave.
Burka's old Aunty tries to warn the headstrong young Burka Woman about the risks involved in going off with strangers, especially heroes and outlaws....but the old woman's daughter  reassures her mother that Ned seems like a pretty good catch, and reminds her also that Burka Woman needs a new friend to help her recover from the brutal death of her husband. 
(He had been tortured to death by US soldiers back in Iraq.)
