The choices of the past echo through the generations in
this moving New Zealand saga tracing the lives of the
Sandle family, first encountered in Kidmanâ€™s Songs from
the Violet CafĂ©
When war widow Irene Sandle goes to work in New Zealandâ€™s
tobacco fields in 1952, she hopes to start a new,
independent life for herself and her daughter â€“ but the
tragic repercussions of her decision will resonate long
after Irene has gone.
Each of Ireneâ€™s children carries the events of their
childhood throughout their lives, played out against a
backdrop of great change â€“ new opportunities emerge for
women, but social problems continue to hold many back.
Headstrong Belinda becomes a successful filmmaker, but
struggles to deal with her own family drama as her
younger siblings are haunted by the past.
A sweeping saga covering half a century, this is a
powerful exploration of family ties and heartbreaks, and
of learning to live with the past
