I'm sorry there's not much to go on.

real life story about 2 children separated by a fence who walk miles along the fence to be with each other.
I caught the end bit and there was a bit at the end that said what happened to them in their lives after this.
Not sure why the fence or what the fence was there for.
They may have been runaway orphans.
It was definitely set in many years ago.

Is it Rabbit-proof Fence? Two young aboriginal girls travel for weeks to get back to their families and community?

Were they wearing striped pyjamas? If they were, don't do it. It will break your heart.

rabbit proof fence, sounds like it could be it.
I'm sure fence was in the title.

The one with the striped pyjamas, do you mean boy in the striped pyjamas?
I've seen this, it's not that film, but thank you.

Do you know why they were separated? it certainly sounds like the same one
I'll try and find it, somewhere. It seemed such a brilliant but sad film.

Walkabout?

Been many years since I saw it or read the book, but from what I can remember it's about two Aborigine children being separated from each other/their family.

No, Walkabout is a 70s film with Jenny Agutter where she and her little brother are befriended by an Aboriginal after their father randomly killed himself. Some weird editing, what was the director on?

OP check imdb-rabbit proof fence is a film with Kenneth Branagh & sounds like the film you describe smile
