This compelling true-life tale is about a woman from New Zealand who is committed to an asylum - but finds the strength of mind to win her release through her gift for writing. Janet Frame is born into a large working-class family and quickly marks herself out as having a keen intelligence. However, her lack of confidence means that she finds it hard to fit in, and in adulthood she suffers a breakdown. Misdiagnosed as suffering from schizophrenia, she's forced to spend years in a mental hospital. It's a harrowing journey, but Frame's determination to succeed makes the film an ultimately uplifting experience.
