Atmospheric and immensely moving, this is the story of a family experiencing a bush fire in Australia. The aftermath is a harsh reality for a family whose home is in the middle of the woods.
It is though, a story of healing and reconciliation. Lives are changed but not broken, there is a future through the devastation.
‘ We drive in silence, with the windows down. The hills are bald, with black spikes where the trees used to be. I don’t recognise any of the old familiar turns or corners. I don’t recognise anything’.
Before the fire this family in Australia have fun and do all the normal things that families do. After the fire they eventually return and start all over again.
In real life it didn’t always work out so well.
Highly recommended for all ages.
