Documentary on writer and illustrator Sheila Natusch, retracing a long life dedicated to sharing her love of New Zealand�s nature and history.
"Featuring beautiful historic footage of the lower South in the 30s and 40s, this film offers fascinating glimpses into life as one of few female students at Otago University, and covers Sheila�s friendship with Janet Frame and their subsequent and unsuccessful foray into teaching. Moving to Wellington in the 50s saw Sheila and husband Gerald Natusch take up residence in Owhiro Bay, while she took professional stints at the National Library and Correspondence School."
