Set in a small Australian town in the 1950s, this tale of overcoming social expectations fosters a sense of community spirit and is sweetly reminiscent of traditional storytelling. A young girl has nothing to wear to the school’s annual fancy dress carnival, so she requests help from her family. Inspired by blossoms on the frangipani tree, the family's creation is both surprising and heartwarming.
