Where do you call home?

Performer Jane Clifton had a classic army brat upbringing, constantly on the move as the family followed the postings of her English officer father from Gibraltar to England, Germany to Malaysia and eventually to Australia. Always the new kid in town, Jane became adept at fitting in anywhere.

 As an adult, living in the fast-moving worlds of anti-war demos, women's lib, experimental theatre, rock 'n' roll, and TV, she kept up the family tradition of changing addresses without so much as a backward glance. But her stiff-upper-lipped father and glamorous, restless mother both died tragically young, and Jane was left with many unanswered questions.

 Where exactly is home? Is it your family? Your memories? Or simply bricks and mortar? One day, Jane decided to go back and visit every house she'd lived in – all 32 of them – to see if she could piece together the jigsaw of her life.

 A funny, moving and unexpected story about one woman's search for home, and the universal desire to find the place you truly belong.
