Adapted from the book by Melina Marchetta, the film is an affectionate look at three generations of strong willed Australian-Italian women through the eyes of the youngest.
Seventeen year-old Josie lives with her mother Christina and is completing her final year at an exclusive Sydney school on a scholarship. Her uncertainty and confusion over her personal relationships and her future career is compounded by the unexpected reappearence of her long departed father. Josie confronts her mother and her Nonna about the rift between Christina and her father, and the animosity between mother and daughter to reveal secrets long since hidden.
