SYNOPSIS: Christina Stead is one of the great writers of the twentieth century. In this unique film record she talks about her life, her writing, her travels and Australia. In her long she life she only ever agreed to one film interview and this is it. Writers Jonathan Franzen and Angela Carter are huge fans and in this film you can see why. Here is Stead in the flesh, her wry humour and razor sharp intellect on show for all to see.
