As a small New Zealand town prepares for a once-in-a-lifetime royal visit, a popular thirteen-year old girl, Elizabeth (Sally Andrews), who dreams of meeting the Queen, finds her fervent hopes put in jeopardy when she develops an unlikely, life-changing friendship with an elderly Maori woman, Hira (Vicky Haughton) outcast from society. Elizabeth’s true character is tested when she must choose between marching in the ceremonial parade of her dreams with a chance to personally meet the Queen and her loyalty to Hira, whose defiant insistence on maintaining and defending her home against all odds teaches Elizabeth the importance of standing up for what she believes in. A touching drama for all ages, this endearing, bittersweet coming-of-age tale about one young girl’s struggle for justice will leave you cheering!
