Curious Intimacy



In the 1870s two remarkable women meet in a remote country town in Western Australia. Ingrid is hundreds of miles from home, trying to distance herself from a broken heart after her lover was forced to marry. Ellyn is a young woman living in stark isolation and driven close to madness by the death of her baby daughter. Ellyn's husband is away indefinitely, and she's had no word from him.
When the two women meet, they forge a bond that grows ever deeper. But can their intimacy find acceptance in their conventional world?
