Charlotte Lockton, a wealthy, upper class, English immigrant, chooses to forgo all of her home luxuries to find her kidnapped baby son. She navigates her way through the unruly and wild world of the gold rush in 1860's New Zealand, finding unlikely friendship amongst the hustlers, whores, Maori Warriors and Chinese Miners. But in the end, she must face the man who took the boy - and become the woman she never thought she'd be. Written by Anonymous

User Reviews

Stay for the cinematography not the story
1 July 2018 | by neilbilasSee all my reviews

Incoherent unnecessary and ultimately dreary, the kind of film that isn't bad but instead incredibly tedious. There's no reason why it's even shot in New Zealand - aside from inferences to it involving outsiders. Even then the locals are painted as mythical noble savages. Incoherent plot line and unbelievable character motivations. Save yourself the 90 minutes.
