AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'It's 1994, and a woman wielding a weapon is shot and killed by Victoria police. How did it come to this? A young woman, struggling with the pain of her own life's journey, hears the news report and mourns for the lost woman she never knew. She writes a song, and ponders. Is what we term mental illness a product of the stories we carry and how they shape and shift us: what we bury deep and what we allow to surface? Stories define who we are, those we've lived; those that are told to us, those we tell ourselves. What's your story, and are you sticking to it?'
