BLOOD SISTER


Kate Kelly (sister of Ned) is being treated for opium addiction in a sanitorium. Through the haze of trauma, memory and—perhaps—drugs, she recalls her dead brothers, Glenrown, the trial, Ned's execution, her girlhood and tries to imagine a future with her husband and children.

A lyrical, poetic and prismatic portrait of one of Australia's great women.
