Genre: Drama. Dir: Ken Cameron. 1982.
Nora (Noni Hazlehurst) is in her early thirties, recently divorced and caring for her 13 year-old daughter, trying to live free of the compromises of conventional domesticity and dependence upon men.
Yet she’s drawn into a dangerously obsessive relationship with actor and heroin addict Javo (Colin Friels).
Set in the inner Melbourne suburbs of Carlton & Fitzroy, within a network of talented, reckless rock ‘n’ roll musicians (including Chrissy Amphlett), actors and writers, it explores the changes Nora undergoes in attempting to gain control over her life.
