This film is a wicked and witty shocker and teaser. With a mere 14 minutes of black and white footage, a New Zealander demonstrates how to hook and rivet an audience while simultaneously sparking off an explosive minefield of metaphors. Witness the demise of the female gothic and the birth of the feminist fantastic.

For a young Maori girl it’s the first day at school, the first day without the security of her parents. Raised with Mäori culture as her basis she is about to enter a foreign environment with little understanding of their culture nor they of hers.

For someone so young she is aware of adult things such as poverty and stress and understands the economic limitations her family lives within. However they have something far more valuable than money – a love for each other and for their culture and its stories.
