This animated short deals with the seemingly harmless practice of importing foreign flora. It tells the story of an elderly woman who ventures out into the Australian desert to set up her home. In her attempt to recreate the beauty of the home she has left she does not realise the beauty that is already there - or the consequences of her actions. Internationally acclaimed children's book author and artist Jeannie Baker uses a unique collage art form to recreate in remarkable detail the textures and colours of the central Australian landscape.
