The Orchadist’s Daughter

Sixteen-year-old Mikaela grew up in an isolated home and continues to live a small and confined existence. Kept a virtual prisoner by her brother Kurt, she longs to forge connections and spend more time in the stunning eucalypt forests that sit just beyond her reach. When Miki meets Leon, an outsider struggle with his own troubles, her world is turned upside down and she is faced with the choice to continue her safe but stifling existence or break free and stand up for the life she always wanted to live.
