Abstract:

"Out gathering stranded sheep, Toss' (Fiona Kay) father falls to his death; at the same moment, she hears the gunshots of an approaching poacher. In his muddy gum boots, the poacher, Ethan (Frank Whitten), carries her father's battered body back to the house. Tuba-playing, pajama-clad grandfather Birdie (Bill Kerr) encourages the stranger to stay, much to the initial disdain of both mother and daughter. Fleeing the sexual tension, Toss retreats to her playhouse in her hooded, woolly, hawk-like hat. It is only in the mirrors of her playhouse, and at last in the ghostly lights which Ethan shows her in his own hiding place, that the boyish Toss is able to explore her grief and accept the confusing first stirrings of womanhood"--Container.
