Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
This Australian trilogy affects the Italian neorealist style. In the first story, a community of miners stage an elaborate funeral for a stranger. The second tale is set during an economic depression and follows a proud but impoverished laborer as he steals wood from an avaricious landowner to keep his mates from freezing during a winter storm. In the final story two young people decide to overcome their fears about money and security and get married.
