After watching the film, scroll down to watch a pre-recorded panel discussion.

There are only two stories: a person goes on a journey or a stranger comes to town.

A stranger arrives to a rural village and calls for auditions asking people to tell her ‘dreams, lies, memories and gossip’.

Together, they go on a cinematic journey to explore their waking and dreaming lives. Featuring a cast of migrant workers, hippies, Travellers, blow-ins and newly arrived refugees, we are ushered into the private worlds of people living between two cultures, sharing their desires of longing and belonging.
