New Zealand acting royalty Jennifer Ward-Lealand stars in this drama about a group of women – mothers, daughters, friends and neighbours. Some of their relationships are good and some are broken... This is the feature debut from Dorthe Scheffmann. Co-stars Emily Campbell, Theresa Healey and Goretti Chadwick. Featuring music by Don McGlashan.

Darcy (Ward-Lealand) is a composer who sees colours when she plays musical notes. When she notices her usually subtle colours changing to an intense red – she realises a profound change is upon her. Over a summer month as the house and garden resonate with the bustle of a wedding, Darcy creates for herself a time of music and reflection that help her make a final choice.

Ward-Lealand is outstanding ... an absorbing drama illuminated by talent that needs and deserves more moments in the spotlight like this.

A wonderfully thoughtful, deliberate film... [Jennifer Ward-Lealand's performance is] layered, assured and fascinating. It's also sensual. And she's not the only post-20s actress preseting a sexually confident character. Healey makes her mark too.
