Jinx Sister

Laura (Sara Wiseman) arrives in New Zealand after ten years in L.A., sporting an American accent and dressed for Rodeo Drive. Laura's sister Maree (Rachel Nash) is a happily married, heavily pregnant mother of two and Laura's hostility and thinly veiled self-loathing are too much for Maree's good intentions. Kiwi helmer Athina Tsoulis examines old wounds and family myths in this domestic drama.
