FROM THE DIRECTOR OF RIVER QUEEN, THE NAVIGATOR AND MAP OF THE HUMAN HEART

Every family has a secret….
Vincent Ward’s deeply personal and incredibly moving film unravels and re-imagines the story of Puhi, the Tuhoe woman he documented in 1978 for his award winning documentary In Spring One Plants Alone. Then, Puhi was 80 and caring for her mentally ill adult son and Ward was 21, a young art student capturing her traditional way of life.
While making that documentary, Ward glimpsed a mystery that would haunt him for three decades and drive him back to unravel the secrets of the past. Why did they call Puhi the burdened one? Why was she an outcast? Was she cursed? In Rain of the Children, Ward sets out to uncover the truth about whom Puhi really was and the extraordinary events of a lifetime lived against a tumultuous historic canvas.
