Welcome to the troubled years.
Struggling to stay afloat, a young Aussie lass bounces between the reality of her 1970s home life, and a surreal dream vista where her friends and family take on bold, sometimes disturbing new looks.
Lost in a forest of the mind, our heroine pursues a creature who has stolen her music box, which leads her into conflict with evil versions of her classmates, and more.
Meanwhile, back in what passes for reality, she has birthday party shenanigans to deal with.
A subtle mix of sad, funny, and touchingly sweet, this is a rare gem.
