Director Solrun Hoaas offers an intimate observation of a Japanese war bride in Australia over a 20-year period, beginning in the 1950s.

This compelling love story, with its complex, emotional, multi-layered performances presents an important perspective on race, tradition and personal aspirations.

Screens with Hoaas' first film, Effacement (1980, 14mins), which meticulously documents the work of an artisan creating a mask for use in a Japanese Noh drama.
