For more than fifty years, Relvy Teasdale and his son John made beautiful films on their farm and within their small community in the Wimmera region of Australia. For the Teasdales, farming and film-making were an inter- related devotional practice, offering views into the psychological, social and economic complexities of a wondrous and sophisticated rural world that on the one hand seems to be disappearing but on the other continues to sustain, adapt and recreate itself. Their luminous archive connects past and present generations, revealing the rhythms and rituals of life on the land and drawing surprising parallels between settler and indigenous modes of mapping and looking after country.

This documentary follows one woman’s quest to get justice for her mother, who was violently raped and beaten in her Johannesburg, South Africa, home in 1988. Although 59-year-old Laura Henkel identified her assailant, a combination of police ineptitude and neighbors’ conflicting accounts led to her attacker, a white teenager, being let off. Since then, Laura has been unable to heal from the trauma, so her daughter Cathy takes matters into her own hands, returning to the scene of the crime.
