After many years away, beautiful, talented and emancipated Tilly (Kate Winslet) returns home to Dungatar, a small Australian town in the middle of nowhere to right the wrongs of her past. Her weapon is a sewing machine and a great sense of style. Why is Tilly out for revenge? And after so many years, how will she get on with her eccentric mother? Will she find a man out there in the outback who will be worthy of her? Featuring a stellar cast, this is a story about the revenge of a woman who returns from the haute couture salons of Paris to an Australian country town, with scenes of the beautiful Australian landscape as a backdrop. A mixed genre film with elements of romantic comedy and drama, it is based on the bestselling novel by Rosalie Ham, and delivers many unexpected twists during the story which all culminate in an amazing finale.
