Ward revisits the life of a woman he documented at the start of his career and decides he wants to know her by examining her history despite her death back in 1980. A labour of love for the director who may well have made the film for his own personal fulfillment more so than a prospective audience. Historical recreations are quite striking and the eye Ward has shown in past narrative features is certainly evidant.
