Sandy, surly but hardworking, is irritated by the imposition of Hiromitsu's polite but determined demand for a driver to chauffeur him on a pointless and potentially hazardous trip to random destinations in the Western Australian desert.
Sandy, as her mother's daughter, and Hiromitsu, as the son of a powerful off-screen father, embody certain culturally recognisable emotions and gestures handed down from one generation to the next.
Sandy's journey takes her to a rare moment of cultural translation near the end of the film, when, resting on the arm of a chair, she takes on the embodied composure, presence and stillness we have come to associate firstly with Hiromitsu and then his wife.
Clan Turnbull (536 words)
Although there is a counter-claim that Turnbull is a derivation of Tumbald, meaning 'Strong and Bold', the name had never been recorded before 1315, when a charter granted William Turnebull estates in Philliphaugh, located on the Scottish/English border.
One of the more infamous of the Turnbull clan was John, lord of Minto, nicknamed "out with the sword" because of his fiery temperament.
The Turnbull castles comprised of Barnshill, built in the sixteenth century near the base of Minto Crags and Bedrule, in the Rule Valley which was destroyed by the English in 1545.
