Summary
Internationally acclaimed film by Aboriginal Film Maker Tracey Moffatt. A Middle-aged Aboriginal woman nurses her old white foster mother. During her tending of the old woman we feel her frustrations of duty, her suppressed anger, her own needs for warmth and love and her personal loneliness. Her memories and dreams invade her nerve fraying routine until the old woman dies and we share the daughter's immense sense of loss. Summary from Ronin Films Catalogue
