RAINBOW'S END

Jane Harrison

 

A First Nations story about the bond of family and the power of the land.

It’s the 1950s in Shepparton, Victoria.  Three generations of the Dear family live together in a rundown shack on the Goulburn River flats. 

Gladys yearns for a better life, a real home and a decent job. Her teenage daughter Dolly has dreams of becoming a nurse, while her resilient grandmother, Nan Dears, is resistant to change.

Dolly falls for Errol, a travelling salesman, who offers her the prospect of another world.  Together they embark on a journey of belonging where the search for a better life challenges the powerful bond that holds these women together.
